Lunchtime panel discussion: Must researchers engage with the public?

WISE@QMUL presents a lunchtime panel discussion: Must researchers engage with the public?
Is it worthwhile to spend time communicating my research to the public?
Do I have an obligation to stand up for misrepresentation of science?
And even if I wanted to, how should I start? Will I be taken seriously?
WISE@QMUL have invited Victoria Murphy, Events and Campaigns Officer at Sense About Science and Dr Amara Anyogu, an ambassador for Voice of Young Science to share their experiences on engaging with the public and address whether being female has prevented them from being heard.
Join us from 12:30 pm for lunch, with a prompt start at 1pm for talks. We'll wind up by 1:45 pm for more coffee and informal networking.
Staff, students or professionals from all organisations, male or female; all are welcome! Free lunch and coffee provided.
