Ramla Qureshi was nominated by UB’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences to represent the school at the Advancement of Science and Association of Public and Land-grant Universities’ (AAAS) Catalyzing Advocacy in Science and Engineering (CASE) workshop in the nation’s capital.
The CASE workshop is an opportunity for STEM students, interested in science in policy making, to learn about the federal policy-making process and how to become “a voice for basic research throughout their careers,” according to the event website.
Qureshi, a PhD student, Fullbright scholar and founder of Women Engineers Pakistan, an organization leading a mission to encourage female participation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics with integration into business and education in Pakistan and beyond, is one of two UB School of Engineering and Applied Sciences representatives at the CASE workshop.
“I will spend several days learning about the structure and organization of Congress, the federal budget and appropriations process, and tools for effective science communication and civic engagement,” Qureshi says, “I will also get the chance to meet government representatives and staffers in a Congressional visit.”
The CASE workshop will be held from March 24 to March 27.
