FoR Boston 2017: Expanding leadership roles for early career researchers
The Future of Research is hosting a symposium in Boston focused on the creation of leadership positions for early career researchers to ensure their voices are heard during decision-making conversations that affect the future of the scientific enterprise. The symposium will be held November 17–18 at the Boston University campus.
Conversations about getting ECR advocates a seat at the table are important for giving the early-career population a voice in science, in particular as they are the most diverse population within academia in terms of race, gender, ethnicity and socioeconomic status. The efforts taken to make sure that our organization is diverse and inclusive, and can speak to as much of the community as possible, are central also to our efforts in preparing symposia.
