Getting to the Heart of Science Communication

Thursday, October 7, 2021 - 3:00pm




Virtual Event
From fires to floods and vaccines to food security, many issues that scientists and science communicators work on are highly emotional, often contentious and sometimes traumatizing, with high stakes for practitioners -- who are often in precarious positions -- and communities alike. Relating, listening, working with conflict and understanding trauma, all with an eye toward justice, are key tools in the 21st century communication toolkit.
Faith Kearns’ new book Getting to the Heart of Science Communication offers real-world stories and guidance to take science communication to a deeper level in these high-stakes times. Switzer Fellows Sarah MyhreMike AntosEvelyn Valdez-Ward and Tamara Marcus are featured science communicators in the book.
Join the Switzer Network for a conversation with Faith, Sarah, Mike and Evelyn to learn from these leaders and discover how relationship-centered research communication can impact your work. Participants will receive a copy of Getting to the Heart of Science Communication and have the opportunity to ask questions and interact with our panelists. Switzer Fellows and colleagues are invited to attend, including non-scientists. 
Register here. We hope to see you there!
