We aim to move from talking about why communicating our science is important to improving how we actually do that.

That’s why, each year, we host at least one workshop or session focused on science communication professional development. The following links will connect you to information about current and past workshops.

2017: Loads (~7) of Sessions at #ESA2017

Experienced communicators will work with you to consider how you represent yourself (Branding is not a dirty word), and how to enhance your presentation skills (improv!). #SketchYourScience is back, and we’ll be doing “Ask a Pro” meet-ups at our booth. We’re also collaborating with Springer Nature Storytellers and The Story Collider on an evening mixer event! Click here for complete event details.

This year’s highlights are:
