Please join us at the Carnegie Science Earth and Planets Laboratory for a workshop day organized around the question, "How do we want to practice science going forward?" designed for and with input from early-career astronomers.

The draft agenda (below) includes an overview of what interdisciplinary science can look like, a discussion about how to build and work in teams with an inclusive mindset, an interactive session about talking to the media from science communication experts, and plenty of time for networking, project pitching, and collaboration building among peers.

This workshop complements the more formal Giant Magellan Telescope Community Science Meeting and is intended to be a productive yet fun and relaxed kick-off to the week. The workshop has no registration fee and breakfast, lunch, and transportation to/from the conference hotel will be provided.
