As a volunteer CAGIS STEM Expert, your name will be entered into a database of individuals with expertise in various topics. You may be consulted about writing or advising on a particular topic, serving on a panel, or being featured as a role model in our newsletter, social media channels, or other outreach initiatives.
If you aren’t available when you are consulted, no problem – you can refer us to another expert or we can contact others in our network.
