|Leadership Lunch: Why and How to Serve on an ESA Committee||
Looking to get more involved with ESA? Consider joining one of the many ESA committees shaping the various programs and activities of the Society.

Join our live Q&A and hear about the experiences from fellow ESA members from all career levels that are serving in a range of positions from Diversity & Inclusion to Student Affairs to Leadership Development. Via this approach, we hope to help all members engage the Society, especially women and minorities.

Webinar attendees will develop intuition for how best to visualize their data (e.g., optimal chart types and color schemes), will learn about novel visualization strategies that can be adapted for scientific data, and will gain familiarity with software that will allow them to generate scientific figures both through writing code and through point-and-click interfaces that require no programming knowledge.
