Event Details

About the event:

Join SRCD in this two-webinar series to offer feedback on SRCD’s past, present, and future approaches to policy. This second webinar focuses on collecting your input on SRCD’s future policy approaches and strategies. Attendance at the prior webinar is not required for this one – all SRCD members are welcome. 

Our discussion will be guided by three key questions: 

  • What are the best ways for SRCD to advance evidence-based policy making?  
  • How do we square being proactive on policy areas that matter to us whilst able to respond to live issues with limited resources?  
  • Which policy areas should we prioritize? 

Unlike the first webinar, which focuses on how policymakers consume and utilize scientific information, this webinar primarily focuses on how SRCD can better promote our scientific information. Members who are unable to attend are also welcome to submit questions, comments, and suggestions to  

All members, regardless of their ability to attend, are encouraged to complete this survey about your views of SRCD’s current approach to policy.
