Topic of Lecture Series
Next week, the Space Telescope Science Institute and several local partners will kick off an innovative lecture series called "Hard Science/Soft Skills: Fostering Civility in the Scientific Workplace."
A lecture at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 7, by P.M. Forni, director of the Civility Initiative at The Johns Hopkins University, is the first of six events designed to examine the connections among relationship skills, ethics, quality of life, and productivity in the scientific workplace. Forni's lecture — titled "Why Civility? Why Now?" — will take place in the auditorium of the Space Telescope Science Institute's Muller Building, 3700 San Martin Drive, on Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus.
Upcoming lecturers include Arthur Ciaramicoli on Feb. 28; Marc Donohue, associate dean for research at The Whiting School of Engineering at Johns Hopkins, on March 28; and Edward Hallowell on April 27. An event is also in the works for May 30 and there will be a panel presentation and discussion on June 27. Each lecture is free and open to the public.
