The 2020 Webinar Series kicked off on February 19, with Kirsten Ronald, Marketing Analyst at Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and Lynnee Argabright, Master’s Student in Library Information Services at UNC Chapel Hill co-moderating “Engaging Early Career Researchers.” Speakers included Lisa Jarvis, Senior Correspondent at C&EN; Dana Compton, Editorial Director of ASCE and President, Council of Science Editors; Katrine Sundsbo, Scholarly Communications and Research Support Manager, Library Services at the University of Essex; and Tajendra Vir Singh, Chief Computational Scientist, UCLA Institute for Digital Research and Education. The panelists offered a number of creative—and effective–ideas for reaching and supporting early career researchers in their respective communities.
This year the webinar series has expanded from six to seven offerings. Topics are chosen by the Education Committee’s webinar working group, led by Jeff Lang of the American Chemical Society. You can hear Jeff as the webinar “emcee” introducing the moderators and speakers.
As in the past, two of the webinars are developed by The Scholarly Kitchen chefs. For the first time, we are also offering two webinars developed by the new Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee. The first of these will have a practical slant, offering tools for assessing workplace culture and tips on how to address the resulting findings.
