About the Skills Development Workshops
EcologyPlus offers Skills Development Workshops that utilize case study formats or hands-on activities to enhance participant understanding of the skills needed for ecological and environmental careers. Centered on environmental issues, participants will be exposed to skills valued by employers in a range of fields, including academic institutions; non-profit organizations; federal, state and local agencies, and businesses. Specific skills to be covered will include a variety of “soft” and “hard” skills like project management, data management, writing, communication, fundraising, collaborative skills, stakeholder and citizen engagement, team-building, customer service, political organization and outreach, networking, financial analysis and planning, and negotiation.
