Science communication goes far beyond academic papers. The benefits of science communication are vast and include increased science literacy and better-informed science policy. In addition, exceptional science communication includes effective means of disseminating scientific content through lectures, publications, grants, outreach initiatives, and interactions with the mass media. Please join us to learn about resources and tips for adopting better science communication techniques throughout your career.

Our guest speaker, Dr. Dione (Dee) Rossiter, is a science communication, engagement, and outreach expert who has previously worked with non-profits, universities, government offices, and for-profit businesses to improve their science engagement efforts; this includes creating new and/or improving existing science communication, marketing, education, diversity, and outreach initiatives.

Dee is currently the Executive Director for Science at Cal, a program that shares the excitement and relevance of UC Berkeley research with public audiences through lectures, street fairs, festivals, and more. She also works with scientists across campus to build sustainable and impactful science outreach collaborations with community and campus partners. Dee's previous positions include the Director of the Mass Media Fellowship at the American Association for the Advancement of Science and Scientific Programs & Outreach Manager at the Carnegie Institution for Science. Dee received her bachelor's degree from UC Berkeley and her Ph.D. from UC Santa Cruz, both in Earth & Planetary Sciences.
