Communicating in a Climate of Change

October 26, 2023 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

A panel of science communicators will discuss the importance of sharing research-based information in formats that engage audiences, convince skeptics, and inspire collaboration. The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research presents this featured event to highlight the role of communications in research. Investigation and discovery is key to protecting our planet’s natural resources and advancing society. But understanding, inspiration, and progress stem from successful communication of those discoveries.

A panel of science communicators will discuss how they explain complex topics with engaging content across a variety of media, and how their efforts engage audiences in a way that affects change.

The panel members will include:

  • Matthew Turner, social media manager, National Park Service
  • Michelle Jewell, shark researcher and science communicator, N.C. State University
  • Kerry Irish, director of communications and marketing, N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences

Panel Emcee: Kat Campbell, WRAL meteorologist
