Held annually, the Leadership Meeting is an opportunity for SEEDS student leaders to engage in a dialogue about the connections between science and society. The meeting provides a venue for SEEDS participants to develop 21st century skills and understanding in communications, policy, community outreach and education, rounding out their experience as young scientists.
The Leadership Meeting was an extension of the SEEDS Undergraduate Research Fellowship program and since 2007 grew to include invited SEEDS chapter leaders and other students recognized for their leadership potential. ESA Governing Board members have joined us as guest speakers and since 2008, we have been delighted to have the participation and support of ESA Presidents who have graciously set time in their busy schedules to join the students.
SEEDS Leadership Meetings are made possible with the generous support from the National Science Foundation, the Mitsubishi Foundation, and ESA member donations.
