BioBE members Erica Hartmann and Clarisse Betancourt attended the OpEd Project in San Francisco this weekend. The program, geared toward increasing the voice of women and minorities in public discourse and especially oped pieces, also contains tips and tricks that are invaluable for communicating with the public and for persuasive (read: grant) writing. After two days of intensive training and an invigorating exchange of ideas, Erica and Clarisse are excited to write their first oped pieces.
For more information about the project, and to find a seminar near you, check out their website.
Erica and Clarisse were sponsored to attend this event by a generous grant from the Harnisch Foundation.
