Communication Workshop

Wednesday, June 21, 8 AM - 12 PM

WHY TRUST: Trust in Science and Scientists is a key issue for me. Therefore, it’s about me working to ensure that ACS members are a trusted voice for science and scientists, equipped with the tools to advocate for this trust with all people–both those trained in science and those who are not. As chemists we know despite the best efforts of all STEM professionals, even the greatest of scientific innovations and potential solutions cannot achieve their higher purpose if society does not trust and believe in the science and in the scientists telling the story.
