News and updates
A new grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation
We’re delighted to announce that CSCCE has received a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to support us as we chart a path to financial sustainability. Over the next few months, you can expect a menu of more streamlined consultancy options, a growing collection of training options, and an institutional membership program.
Thanks to this new funding, we’re now looking to hire our first Membership Director. This is a key role at a pivotal point in CSCCE’s evolution – and we’re looking for a US-based, highly collaborative individual with a passion for creating member experiences that delight and empower!
As part of our research into the importance of building community in STEM, we create profiles to describe the key features of existing communities. Our latest collection builds on the initial pilot (released in 2020), and showcases a variety of infrastructure organizations, research collaborations and communities of practice.
July community call: Explore CSCCE community profiles
This month, we’re showcasing a new collection of community profiles on our community call, and have invited three of the community managers who took part in this project to share their experiences. Join us TODAY at 3pm UTC / 11am EDT.
Last June, while we were all still adjusting to living and working during lockdowns and quarantines, we hosted weekly unstructured social hours for any of our members to come and decompress, connect, and find support. We’ve brought these social hours back for July and August, but this time we’ll loosely theme each bi-monthly meetup around one of the CSCCE core values. Our next social hour will take place on Wednesday, 28 July 2021 at 3pm UTC / 11am EDT, when the value is “We empower one another.”
The Fannie and John Hertz Foundation seeks an outstanding Director of the Hertz Community to oversee the strategic engagement and mobilization of our more than 1,200 Hertz Fellows, a multigenerational network of many of our nation’s most accomplished science and technology leaders and disruptors. We’re looking for an influential and highly organized leader with experience engaging scientific and technical communities and who thrives on building productive relationships with all kinds of people, both online and in person. In this highly visible role, you’ll help create connectivity among our fellows, fuel and accelerate collaborations, and grow the foundation’s capacity to support our fellows’ pursuit of game-changing research and technology development.
