Today's workplace for "hard-discipline" organizations, such as science, technology, engineering and medicine requires a more diverse and balanced set of skills for success than at any other time in history. Organizational dynamics, diverse cultures, genders, professions and backgrounds, as well as environmental, consumer and business demands require an emphasis on interpersonal, ethical, and relational competencies as well as traditional technical orientations. Several organizations and institutions, including the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, will address these issues in a six-part lecture series entitled "Hard Science/Soft Skills: Fostering Civility in the Scientific Workplace." Lecture dates are: Feb. 7, Feb. 28, March 28, April 27 and May 30. Panel presentation and discussion on June 27. Lectures will begin at 4 p.m. in the institute's auditorium, 3700 San Martin Drive. Admission is free.
