Who we are

Our Team

In addition to the rotating team of topic-based advisors, The Plenary is driven by dedicated volunteers, board members, contributors, and partners.

Contributors vary depending on project needs. The Plenary is based on a series of projects and experiments that began in 2015 under the name “The People’s Science”. In that time, we have worked with over 100 advisors, collaborators, and contributors who helped make our events and initiatives a success.
