PSECCO Launches its First Polar Postdoc Leadership Workshop!

The Polar Science Early Career Community Office is excited to announce that the 2023 Polar Postdoctoral Leadership Workshop (PPLW) will be taking place in Colorado, from May 15 to 19, 2023. The workshop will bring 20 US-based postdoctoral researchers studying Antarctic and Arctic topics together from across the country to activate leadership skills that they can bring into their future careers. Participation in the workshop is free and travel support will be provided (more details below). Participants will be selected by the PSECCO PPLW Selection Committee, with a goal of establishing a discipline-, geographic-, and holistically diverse cohort.  

The PPLW is a multi-day workshop where the future leaders of the polar sciences come together to engage with current and future polar science topics and access skills and training that give them the confidence to step into leadership roles in our field. An outcome of the workshop will be a recommendation to the community about how to participate in leading the polar science community towards a new academia that works for all.
