NSBE Public Policy SIG

NSBE Public Policy SIG The NSBE Public Policy Think Tank was established to study public policy issues affecting Blacks in academia, industry, government and the community.
Established in July 2010, the NSBE Public Policy Think Tank serves as the policy research and analysis arm supporting the National Society of Black Engineers.

Primarily engaged in studying public policy issues affecting Blacks in academia, industry, and government, discussing the effect these policies have on our professional, personal, and public communities; and educating and advising on adverse policies which impact our social, professional, and community condition. To the extent that policy problems or solutions are technical in nature, the NSBE Public Policy Think Tank employs research-based methods to explore topical areas, develop position papers, lectures, and discussion forums, and develop solutions to improve or enhance the public policies of the United States.

Mission: NSBE: To increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community.

At this year's Annual Legislative Conference the Public Policy SIG assisted Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson's STEM Braintrust session. Our team was able to educate students and other attendees about NSBE; most notably how the Society can be a support system at all levels of education and into their professional careers. We appreciate the Congresswoman and her staff for providing a space for NSBE to impact young minds. We thank the planning team (Joy Laws, Tiffany Harrison, Rayricus Matthews, Vernal Green, Joshua Crittenden, PEB and many others) for all their hard work!

The Science Network Mentor Program

The NSBE Public Policy SIG has partnered with the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) Science Network to launch the UCS science advocacy Science Network Mentor Program. We are bridging the gap between academic pursuits and advocacy, policy, and social justice.

Through the Science Network Mentor Program, mentors and mentees work together to design and implement an advocacy project. The mentor will provide one-on-one coaching and guidance to maximize the impact of the project. And there’s more—both mentors and mentees get access to tailored tools and resources that sharpen your communication and advocacy skills.

Applications are due January 20, 2019. Follow the link below to apply to become a mentee or mentor
