Are you interested in communicating your science to non-experts? Have you wondered how your research might be applied to policy? Join this webinar to learn two essential skills in communicating science with policy makers and other non-exeperts. First, how to craft a verbal elevator pitch to quickly engage any audience in your research. Second, how to create a written 2-page summary of your research, aka policy brief, to engage a relevant policy maker.

  • How scientists can use elevator pitches to engage the public and policy makers in lots of situations not involving elevators, Jessica Rohde, Web Manager and Communication Officer, Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee
  • 2-page Summaries of research for policy makers, Kelsey Aho, Center for Arctic Policy Studies at the International Arctic Research Center
