THE DAY ONE PROJECT OPENS CALL TO IDENTIFY TOP 100 S&T ROLES IN GOVERNMENT, WASHINGTON, D.C.
The Day One Project is working to identify 100 key leadership roles across the Federal Government where scientific and technical expertise is most critical. The Project recognizes that deep scientific expertise in government can be significant, yet many Federal positions where technical experts can have the greatest impact are overlooked and unknown to the scientific community.
“The federal government’s most important responsibilities – from ensuring American national security to promoting public health – demand leadership that draws on deep scientific and technical expertise. Many of the most critical leadership roles remain unfamiliar to those outside of Washington. The Day One Project aims to shed light on the positions that necessitate strong leadership in science and technology and bring attention to the qualified, diverse candidates that can fill these roles in the next administration,” Dan Correa, Director of the Day One Project, said.
Over the next few months—with support from the S&T community—the Day One Project will identify critical science leadership roles across the Federal government that should be prioritized on day one of the next presidential term. As the Day One Project works to build this resource, the Project will seek the guidance of the science and technology community at large and will make the final product available for public access.You can learn more about the open call for contributions here.
