Saleh Ahmed, an assistant professor in the School of Public Service, has been selected for the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Voices for Science program, communications/media track. This year-long science outreach training selects 20 scholars each year.
As the AGU website states:
“Voices for Science is a program AGU launched in 2018 that centers around training scientists to address the critical need for communicating the value and impact of Earth and space science to key decision makers, journalists, and public audiences. The program recruits scientists to participate in one of two tracks: policy or communications.
The Voices for Science program provides scientists interested in science communication and outreach with specialized training to hone their skills. Throughout the twelve-month program, participants work directly with AGU staff to conduct regular outreach activities with a variety of audiences in their local communities.”
