Webinar Description

Geoscience communicators have a particular responsibility to promote an ethical, diverse, inclusive culture across the geosciences, while consciously increasing access to geoscience information to all sectors of the public. We can and must start to make thoughtful, meaningful changes in who presents information, what we present, and how we present it. We will share some ideas and examples of how to produce media to engage with diverse audiences, tips for amplifying the voices of diverse scientists on social media and in mass media, and developing educational materials explicitly created using a justice, equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility lens.

Webinar Goals

In this webinar, participants will:

  • Be introduced to basic guidelines for inclusive science communication
  • See examples of high quality media for diverse audiences
  • Learn about other resources to gain additional information and professional development on this topic
