Public Engagement Workshops

for Scientists

Our public engagement workshops, also known as Scientifically Speaking, are a forum for young scientists to openly discuss concerns they have about speaking to the media and the public. We have two types of workshops: half day or full day, each featuring panels of scientists, journalists, and science communicators who provide context and explanation for why it is important for scientists and journalists to work together. We encourage scientists who attend our workshops to engage in these conversations, both during our sessions and afterwards.

If you are interested in hosting a workshop, please contact Neda Afsarmanesh.
