Science and technology play an integral part in solving many of society’s greatest challenges. Critical questions and effective solutions are found in a rich ecosystem of innovation, where scientists can choose many different challenging and fulfilling careers. These careers require much more than technical training; they require skills and mindsets for effective leadership, communication, and ethics which are typically not taught in STEM curricula. SCI training programs are designed to bring these necessary skills and mindsets to the scientific community.
We envision a future in which scientists are active citizens, working as interdisciplinary problem-solvers inside and outside of academia where they learn from others and share what they know and have a meaningful impact on their communities and society.
