SciComm STEP will guide experienced science communicators (SCs) to use their experience on themselves to overcome career-advancement barriers. Participants will leave this six-week, cohort-based program with individualized action plans that shift their approach to professional growth. STEP builds beyond existing science communication (scicomm) training/resource programs, making intensive, product- and mindset-focused professional coaching available to a broad swath of SCs for a minimal fee (no membership or paywalls!). The first cohort of SciComm STEP is fully funded by the National Association of Science Writers through their Peggy Girshman Idea Grants Program.
