Metcalf Institute hosted the first-ever #InclusiveSciComm Symposium at the University of Rhode Island, September 28-29, 2018, launching an important national conversation about the value and necessity of making science communication inclusive and accessible.

Overwhelming feedback from symposium participants highlighted the enormous demand for training and resources to facilitate inclusive science communication and engagement. Following up on the symposium, Rhode Island C-AIM, the lead sponsor of the symposium, has the opportunity to position itself as a national leader on inclusive science communication as part of the program’s strategic focus on workforce development.

What are the next steps to seize this opportunity? How can C-AIM leverage momentum from the symposium and respond to the demand for inclusivity? What new partnerships and collaborations focused on inclusion and equity can advance C-AIM’s objectives? How does inclusive science communication fit into C-AIM’s strategic plan?

Metcalf Institute will host a SciComm Exchange at URI’s Kingston Campus on October 31, 2018, to discuss these issues. This special SciComm Exchange, specifically designed for C-AIM participants, will summarize symposium outcomes with the goal of sharing ideas, discussing next steps, and adapting our strategies as needed.

Continental breakfast will be available at 8:45 am.
