Science communication goes far beyond academic papers. The benefits of science communication are vast and include an increase in science literacy and better-informed science policy. In addition, exceptional science communication includes effective means of disseminating scientific content through lectures, publications, grants, outreach initiatives, and interactions with the mass media.
Please join us to learn tips and resources for adopting better science communication techniques and resources in a brown bag lunch led by Dione (Dee) Rossiter, a science communication, engagement, marketing, education, and outreach specialist who has worked with non-profits, universities, government offices, and for-profit businesses to improve their science engagement efforts.
After completing her Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science within the Earth and Planetary Sciences Department at UC Santa Cruz, Dee embarked on a career in science communications. She has leveraged the unique perspective as a trained scientist to create and/or improve science communication, marketing, education, policy, diversity, and outreach initiatives, for leading scientific institutions such as the Association for the Advancement of Science and Carnegie Institution for Science. In addition to her engagement work, Dee is currently an Adjunct Professor in the Meteorology & Climate Science Department at San Jose State University.
