ESA 2021 Events relating to communication, engagement, DEIJ, and more

For the 2020 annual meeting, ESA developed a Broadening Impacts Sessions webpage that highlighted events and sessions in following categories:
Communication & Engagement, Diversity & Inclusion, Education, Career Development, and Policy. If they provide this website again, we will update this page with live links.

Once the program is live, we’ll highlight a few sessions and events below.

If you have a SciComm or Engagement poster/event/talk/session accepted not mentioned here or have an update please reply to this email to let us know and we can amplify it on Twitter. We’d love to spread the word about your session!
