Mentorship Component: Communicating Science Effectively
A panel discussion with career scientists in both academia and industry. This session will include an insightful conversation with mid- to late-career peers who have found the secret recipe to communicating their work effectively. The discussion leader will ask the panel selected questions that are collected from the audience anonymously. Whether you are looking to improve your poster presentation, job interview skills, scientific paper, or just write a simple email, this session will help you discover little areas of improvement that will go a long way.
