SciComm Training with WySCI

There are a lot of reasons to enhance your science communication skills

and a lot of ways to do so.

Whether you are looking for dedicated training to demystify the media or develop a social media plan, design a K-12 outreach project, or get better at talking about science with policymakers or other stakeholders, science communication training can bolster your confidence and skills. WySCI is here to connect you to trainings, collaborate on customized trainings, and more. Scroll down for training resources and our current trainings calendar.

A scicomm training reason that might surprise you:

Meet grant-based work expectations

Science communication training can also help PIs and their teams meet work expectations to maintain employment status based on grant stipulations. If you are looking for feasible, virtual ways of continuing productive work, and training is an option, consider science communication training for yourself and your team.
