This month’s newsletter focuses on some of our new partnerships and projects we’re working on to support STEM community managers and their communities. These range from collaboration on new grants, to ongoing client partnerships, to new connections made at conferences and community calls. If something in this newsletter sparks your interest and you’d like to find out more about the ways in which we can work together, let us know (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Earlier this month, we participated in the Inclusive Sci Comm Symposium, Virtual SciDataCon, and the Japan Scicom Forum. You can find out more about our ongoing work on inclusive language in community building in this newsletter, and keep an eye on our blog for more on our other conference sessions.
We’re also currently hiring for two new positions; a learning program manager and a communications assistant. If you’re interested in applying, or know someone who might be the perfect fit, please let us know as soon as possible. Interview letters will be going out next week!
In this month’s newsletter:
Find out more about the work we’ll be doing on a new NSF IUSE grant to help students at minority serving institutions succeed in environmental data science
Catch up on our recent session at the Inclusive SciComm Symposium, which focused on inclusive language and community building
Watch presentations from our recent community call on community champions programs
Sign up for priority registration for the January cohort of Scientific Community Engagement Fundamentals, our foundational course for all STEM community managers
We’ll be opening priority registration for the Q1 cohort of Scientific Community Engagement Fundamentals next week. This is an 8-week virtual offering, with lessons, co-labs, and ongoing support from CSCCE staff. The course usually sells out quickly, so make sure your name is on the priority registration list by signing up here.
New NSF grant to support environmental data science students at minority serving institutions
This month marked the beginning of a new collaboration for CSCCE, thanks to funding from the National Science Foundation’s Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) program. We’re excited to be working with long-time collaborators ADSA, NEON, and The Carpentries, as well as the Native BioData Consortium, the Atlanta University Center Data Science Initiative, and the SCORE-UBE Network.
Earlier this month, we hosted an interactive session at the Inclusive SciComm Symposium to discuss inclusive language in community building. We also shared a nascent glossary of terms to support these discussions, which we’ll publish soon.
In last month’s newsletter we shared a new CSCCE guidebook on community champions. In our October community call, we discussed the guidebook and also heard from three members of our community of practice who are currently running programs to support emergent leaders
These positions are closing soon, so if you’re interested, please send us your application materials by end of day Monday, 1 November.
Learning program manager
The Learning Program Manager and Trainer for CSCCE is a key new role, helping to shape the long-term direction of CSCCE’s training offerings so that CSCCE remains the leading research and training organization to support scientific community managers and their organizations. As CSCCE has grown, we’ve piloted several online learning courses and tested complementary online tools for virtual learning. We’re now ready to expand our offerings to support community managers in an ongoing learning journey with us, which will span a range of additional courses and other activities.
This part-time (15 hours per week) opportunity would suit a current student or recent graduate looking to transition to a member-centric communications role. Working with CSCCE’s Communications Director, you’ll learn about supporting community members, coordinating communications and programming, and creating content that aligns with an overall content strategy.
