CEO Forums

CEO hosts monthly lunchtime community forums from October through May at various locations on the UC Berkeley campus.

Forums bring the CEO community together for discussion, information sharing, and skill building. They are open to all, and except when indicated on the event description, no RSVP is required.

Forums focus on such topics as diversity and broadening participation in STEM, innovations in teaching and learning, informal science education, assessment of learning impacts, implementation of K-12 Next Generation Science Standards, new research in the science of teaching and learning, federal and state STEM education policy, and more. Forums may take the form of single speaker presentations, panels, or workshops. All events are informal, with ample time dedicated to discussion and idea-sharing. Attendees may bring brown-bag lunches.

Forum topics are conceived, planned, and organized by and for CEO members. If you would like to present or host a forum session, please contact CEO co-chairs Kate Spohr or Dan Zevin.

CEO events are ADA accessible. For disability accommodation requests and information, please contact Disability Access Services by phone at 510.643.6456 (voice) or 510.642.6376 (TTY) or by email at
