AAAS + U = D Science Careers
As the President of AAAS, I bring to the position a strong belief that, as scientists, our
contributions to the public good come not only through our research, but from our civic
On June 24 at 12:00 p.m. EST, please join me for a webinar on how science is currently
being used in defense of human rights, and what our community can do to further those
efforts through the application of science and technology. This dialogue is a unique
opportunity for AAAS members, like you, to participate in an in-depth discussion of this
core element in AAAS's mission of advancing science and serving society.
During the webinar, I will lead a panel of experts in discussing the ways in which
scientists currently impact human rights work, and what can be done to engage more
scientists and scientific associations in the protection of human rights.
To participate, please register here.
Since 1977, the AAAS Science and Human Rights Program (SHRP) has pioneered a variety of
scientific and technical applications that are now standard tools of the human rights
community including, using forensic and genetic sciences to identify victims of mass
atrocities, protecting human rights communications with electronic encryption technologies,
and employing satellite imagery to document human rights violations. But there is more work
to be done -- and we need your help.
I hope you will join me on June 24 to explore the many ways in which we can use science to
make human rights a reality for all.
