Twice a year we take some time on our monthly community call to focus solely on connecting with one another. On our June call, we’re offering another round of our curated networking forum (find out what that means below!) and setting participants up with a series of one-on-one chats.Continue reading “June’s community call – Annual Summer Social!”
Believe it or not, a quarter of 2022 is already behind us. So, we’re looking ahead to what’s coming up in our monthly community calls over the next three months.
If you’ve never been to a CSCCE community call, these are monthly virtual gatherings (kind of like a webinar, but more interactive!) for anyone interested in building communities in STEM. Most participants on the calls are members of our community of practice, and we regularly invite members to present or lead discussions. Calls are scheduled for 90 minutes to allow conversations to blossom and diverge, but we also appreciate 60 minutes is typical for virtual meetings and so if you have to leave at the top of the hour there’s no need to apologize.
We do not routinely record calls, however if there are formal presentations we make those available after the fact on our YouTube channel. Our rationale is that by not recording the calls we afford more opportunity for participants to speak candidly in a protected space, and, to ensure people who are unable to attend benefit from shared learnings, we publish blog post recaps within a week after the call.
You can find a record of our past community calls, including recaps and recordings, here.Continue reading “Community calls coming up in Q2 of 2022”
Our second annual summer social will take place during our June 2021 community call: Wednesday, 16 June at 3pm UTC / 11am EDT. This year, we’re organizing a virtual “open house,” where you can choose your own adventure. This might include finding out more about various CSCCE activities including special interest groups, focus groups and trainings, chatting with your fellow STEM community managers, and playing a game of “Lingo Bingo.” All are welcome, so read on to find out more!
