To reap the benefits of science and technology, we need an informed and engaged public. How can we as scientists best share our advances with the nation and the world?
Whether advising on complex issues, promoting new technologies, or inspiring the next generation of scientists and entrepreneurs, we greatly increase our impact when we engage productively with the public and other communities.
Organized around the theme of "Engaging the World," the 2019 summer workshop brought Hertz Fellows, award-winning scientists, thought leaders, and distinguished guests gathered in Los Angeles for an intensive weekend of discussion, learning, and networking. The workshop provided an ideal environment to find new collaborators, connect mentors and mentees, and build lasting relationships with leaders across science and technology.
