How are communities run? Exploring community governance
This month, in the lead up to tomorrow’s monthly community call (Wednesday, 17 November at 4pm UTC / 11am EST), we’ve been thinking about community governance models and how they play out in the STEM community ecosystem. On tomorrow’s call, we’re looking forward to hosting a conversation about the nuance of community governance, the pros and the cons of different models, and how in many organizations multiple models are employed to meet different needs, both in intentional and responsive ways. Have we piqued your interest? If so, do join us tomorrow for more (see this blog post for detailed information and how to join).
We’ll be presenting (virtually) more about the CSCCE Community Profiles at next month’s AGU Fall Meeting, and also sharing our model for creating collaboration guides to scaffold large scale collaborations. If you’re attending the meeting and would like to connect, let us know by emailing email@example.com.

A conversation about community governance
For our November community call, we’re hosting a conversation in response to a need expressed within our community of practice to understand community governance models. Alyica Crall of The Carpentries will join CSCCE’s Lou Woodley and Katie Pratt to facilitate the call, which will take place tomorrow, Wednesday 17 November at 4pm UTC / 11am EST.
This issue of the Sloan 2020 highlights magazine begins with the foundation’s president, Adam Falk, outlining the importance of community in science, and includes an article about how CSCCE is “challenging outdated cultural norms in science.”
Our profiles collection expands in collaboration with STIP Wilson
The CSCCE Community Profiles offer snapshots of communities in STEM, from programming to community structure and governance to funding. A new collaborative collection focuses on the open hardware and open science ecosystem.
At the Japan SciCom Forum, hosted by the Earth-Life Science Institute (ELSI) in Tokyo, CSCCE’s Camille Santistevan and Lou Woodley facilitated a workshop based around our PACT framework for virtual event planning. This also gave us the opportunity to create our first fully bilingual worksheet to enhance participation.
CSCCE partners with the Environmental Data Science Inclusion Network (EDSIN) to support their community development
Over the course of the past 20 months, scientific communities have worked hard to pivot their member engagement strategy to support meaningful interactions in the digital space. Earlier this year, CSSCE worked with the Environmental Data Science Inclusion Network to reassess their members’ needs and ensure that the content and programming provided is responsive to them.
CSCCE to work with Bioconductor on a new grant from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative
As part of the latest cycle of grants under the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI)’s Essential Open Source Software for Science program, CSCCE will be working with the software nonprofit Bioconductor as they develop a new training program and community platform for their users.
CSCCE collaborating on a new NSF grant to help students at minority serving institutions succeed in environmental data science
Thanks to funding from the National Science Foundation’s Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) program, we will be working with partner organizations in the data science domain to support a series of working groups and workshops for instructors at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs).
