We are working with C&E Section members and ESA more broadly to move from talking about why communicating our science is important to improving how we actually do that. That’s why, at each year’s annual meeting, 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 at annual meetings.
2019: C&E Sessions for 2019
Follow this link to see what’s in store for this years annual meeting!
The 2018 ESA annual meeting (#ESA2018) in New Orleans provided a significant opportunity to plan scicomm-related sessions that took into account ethics, inclusivity, community and ecosystem resilience, the science of scicomm, and many more themes of critical importance to our Section, ESA, and society more broadly. The C&E Section was involved with 10+ sessions, out of a host of sessions focused on C&E, career success, and sessions specifically related to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and career success. In preparation for ESA 2018, we coordinated with several other sections to ensure a wide range of scicomm and engagement sessions are on the program, while also avoiding time and topic conflicts. Folks shared session ideas in this ESA-wide coordinating doc, which informed many of the sessions that were ultimately developed and approved.

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 details.
2016: 2 Sessions at #ESA2016
Experienced communicators will will work with you one-on-one in our portfolio/project review workshop, and then get you jazzed up during our IGNITE session! Click here for complete details.
Experienced science communicators will lead visual communication and writing activities to help participants build skills in conveying complex scientific concepts to broad audiences through storytelling and other creative narrative pathways. Click here for complete details on SciComm at #ESA100.
