Engineers and Scientists Acting Locally (ESAL)
ESAL is a national organization dedicated to increasing local engagement by professionals with backgrounds in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Many engineers and scientists are interested in making a difference in their communities, but they don’t know how to get involved or overlook the important role that cities, counties and states play in policy development and implementation. We hope to encourage and help STEM professionals to meaningfully engage with their local government and with community-oriented non-profit and volunteer organizations by sharing stories of how others have made a difference in their communities.
