Allison Chartrand Joins AGU Voices for Science

Allison Chartrand, ESSIC Post-doctoral Associate, has been selected for the American Geophysical Union’s (AGU) 2024 Voices for Science program.


The program seeks to support scientists with strong communication skills and an interest in sharing the value and impact of Earth and space science with key decision makers, journalists, and public audiences, to increase the widespread understanding of and support for science. As a member of the 2024 class, Allison was selected from a highly competitive applicant pool based on demonstrated leadership and the potential to positively influence the local community.


Voices for Science provides its participants with many resources, including unique skills-building workshops and resources focused on communications and policy; hands-on support from AGU staff in conducting and organizing outreach opportunities; and expense-paid travel to Washington, D.C., for an April workshop and again for AGU24 in December. Beyond the professional development opportunities in the program, Allison will also network and collaborate with the 39 other scientists selected for the program, and the 228 members of the past six years’ cohorts.


Congratulations, Allison!
