This event is part of the Communicating Your Science series.

Join us on the third Friday of the month at 2 pm for a series of talks and workshops aimed at helping STEM professionals publish and communicate their research. This series will feature presentations by The Graduate Center’s science librarian and communications staff, journal editors, and reporters. The goal of this series is to enhance the professional development and science communication skills of CUNY STEM faculty, postdocs, and students.

Join us for a media-skills building session that includes an opportunity to talk with working science reporters about your research.

Now more than ever it’s critical for science to be accessible and understandable to the public. In this Communicating Your Science Workshop, hosted in partnership with CUNY’s Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism, we will cover how to distill your complex science into compelling talking points for the public and communicate your work to science reporters.

You must reserve interview slots and complete a short talking points worksheet as part of your registration for this 90-minute virtual workshop. Participation in this event is restricted to 20 registrants and is on a first come, first serve basis.
