Impactful science policy writing: Empowering scientists to engage society

Scientists and other researchers have knowledge and information that could be useful to policymakers, and to their constituents. But working with policymakers - building trust, finding opportunities for collaboration and discussion - requires a skill set that most experts lack.

During this session, Dr. Adriana Bankston from the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science will offer suggestions and strategies for researchers who would like to use their findings to support policymakers and policymaking. She will also discuss opportunities for early-career scientists to publish their policy work in ways that are more likely to reach government officials and others who work in policy.
