Science communication working in Washington DC

Recommended Posts

The Sharing Science program with the American Geophysical Union is
hosting a FREE science communication working on Monday, 31 October from
9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at AGU headquarters in Washington DC.

Learn how to communicate your science clearly and concisely in a way
that will resonate for any audience at this hands-on American
Geophysical Union (AGU) communications workshop hosted at AGU
headquarters in DC.

At this interactive workshop, you will learn how to communicate science
to people in your community, policy makers, and the media, in a
relevant, engaging, and memorable way. You will learn how to identify
the right group for you to reach out to, how to create an effective
message about your research/work, and how to tailor your presentation
for a specific audience. You will also learn active listening skills,
have the chance to practice public speaking, and receive feedback from
communication experts and your peers.

This workshop is designed for scientists who want to learn how to more
effectively communicate their research/work, as opposed to policy
professionals, outreach specialists, journalists, or other professional

Scientists from all disciplines and of all communications-experience
levels are welcome. This workshop is free and lunch will be provided.
Advance sign-up is required and registration is on a first-come, first-
served basis.
