For scientists who communicate, pass this on

Over on The Eloquent Woman blog, I've pulled together all the posts related to or inspired by scientists' efforts to communicate with public and non-technical audiences--with 14 posts on all aspects of public speaking and presenting (including one from this blog). They cover considerations for scientists from structuring content to including needed detail. Some great role models, videos and examples are included to get your favorite scientist inspired to improve these skills.

I'll be walking the talk on that score later next week when I lead a session at this workshop at the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual meeting, with a focus on scientists' responsibilities when they work with reporters.  The session is for early career scientists and they must pre-register in order to attend.  Please share these resources with the scientists you work with!
