When: Tuesday 18th February, 11:15am-12:15pm
Are you a science communication pioneer? Or do you want to be? Are you the first person in your organisation with ‘science communication’ in your job description? Or perhaps the only science communicator in a sea of non-communicating scientists? Or maybe you’re the only ‘science-y’ communications person in a mainstream marketing department?
Sometimes it’s tough to convince the people you work with that: a) science communication is a thing, and b) it’s a thing worth doing well. In this presentation, we’ll tell you about our experiences of being science communicators in a government agency. We’ll talk about our ups and downs, and share how we have convinced (almost) everyone that science communication really does matter.
