The cover story spotlights a game developed by analysts at RAND to introduce young women to the world of wargaming. A second feature explores "community citizen science" — a growing movement that is having an impact on the future of science and public policy. The Q&A features senior management scientist Cortney Weinbaum, whose recent project examines ethics in scientific research — particularly in areas such as artificial intelligence and machine learning. In this issue's Commentary column, senior policy researcher Rita Karam offers insights into how community colleges can establish better partnerships with local and regional employers. The Giving column highlights Soledad O'Brien, whose recent gift to the Pardee RAND Graduate School will support scholarships for underrepresented minority students or first-generation college graduates.
