Insights from the Science and Public Leadership Fellows Program

At the PopTech Science and Public Leadership Fellows retreat at National Geographic headquarters earlier this month, the program’s faculty provided key insights to help equip the 2011 Fellows with enhanced leadership, collaboration and communication skills.

For a taste of their ideas, have a look at this wonderful graphic record produced by Peter Durand.

You’ll find:

  • Storytelling tips from people like Lisa Witter of Fenton, Jad Abumrad of Radiolab, Joe Palca of NPR and Jeff Nesbit of Climate Nexus;
  • A view into science policy-making through the eyes of Thomas A. Kalil of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy;
  • Peter Lee of Microsoft Research on how idealism and diversity drive scientific discovery;
  • The ten rules of collaboration from Philip E. Bourne of UCSD; and more.

PopTech is very grateful to the faculty for generously donating their time to benefit the Fellows, and to our partners, Microsoft Research, National Geographic, the Rita Allen Foundation, the National Science Foundation and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, for supporting this program.

Stay tuned for PopTech 2011, where you’ll have a chance to see the Fellows in action when they present from the PopTech stage.
