Amplifying Voices Webinar Applications

Amplifying Voices Webinar Applications

The purpose of the Amplifying Voices webinar series is to promote the scientific research of Early Career Researchers (ECR) (Advanced PhD or MSc student; Postdoctoral Fellow; Early Career Faculty) from historically excluded groups* in our scientific society. It provides an opportunity to showcase the great work done from our global community, promote inclusion and foster belonging.

Selected candidates will be asked to present a 20-minute science talk; there will be two talks in each hour-long session with a question period moderated by an ASLO Early Career committee or Board member. A presenter may pre-record their talk but must be present live for questions after the talk. Presenters also have the option of having their talks recorded and made available on ASLO’s YouTube page.

We particularly urge members originally from outside of North America and Western Europe to participate and we intend to specifically promote the voices of ECR with limited travel opportunities in our series. However, all ECR scientists who face exclusion are encouraged to apply.

Selected speakers will be given an honorarium and a certificate of participation after they complete their webinar.

If you want to present but are unsure, or have questions or comments, please contact the committee at ec-committee-aslo@googlegroups.com.

*Historically excluded groups are defined broadly to include ethnic origin and ethnicity, disability, sex, gender and sexual orientation, or any other component of identity underrepresented in science, which may greatly vary in different countries.
