Hi all,

Please see the message below advertising the White Paper Project, which is
having a kickoff event this Thursday at 5:30 PM. It is organized by the
Graduate and Professional Student Senate and is open to all interested
graduate/professional students and post-docs at UW. I and a few others from
the PCC participated last year, and found it very interesting.

Would you like to learn how to use your research to DRIVE policy?

The GPSS Science and Policy Committee invites you to join its White Paper
Project, kicking off the evening of Thursday, November 16th at 5:30 PM.
In small groups, with likeminded, interdisciplinary students, you will
write a white paper (a short policy statement) on a topic of your choice.
The WPP experience will consist of:

(1) A workshop/mixer, where you will learn basics of writing a white paper,
meet team members, and learn about some potential collaborative projects.
Food & beverages will be served.

(2) Get support from policy experts as you write your white paper, during
drop-in advising sessions over the course of the program.

(3) Learn about how to distribute your white paper to policy makers or
publish it in a reputable journal

If you would like to participate, please sign-up. For questions or concerns
please email Scott Spencer at sspenc2 at uw.edu.
(Note: This event is for UW-affiliated graduate students and post-docs)
