Many of us on the COMPASS team get asked “What’s your favorite thing about working at COMPASS?” The initial response is always the same: “Just ONE thing? Yikes, that’s hard.” But when we get down to it, I hear two consistent answers:
The people. Our teammates. The scientists we support. The networks we connect them to, especially journalists and policymakers. We are people people.
The work. Making a difference in the world. Knowing that you helped support scientists to find their ‘so what’ and find their voice – to share both their insights and their passion. Being part of society’s journey to help people and environment thrive. Figuring out what it really means to be a science communication practitioner. Being part of a small organization with big impact. Innovating. Busting silos. Connecting.
