The Inclusive SciComm Symposium defines “science communication” in its broadest sense: any information exchange designed to engage specific audiences in conversations or activities related to science, technology, engineering, mathematics, or medicine (STEMM) topics. Inclusive SciComm spans many related fields, such as public engagement with STEMM, informal science learning, journalism, community-based participatory research, inclusive pedagogy, service learning, community organizing, and many others.
The inaugural InclusiveSciComm Symposium (ISCS) was held at URI in September 2018. Thanks to the generous support of sponsors and a desire to meet the growing demand for this type of gathering, the symposium was expanded to three days in 2019 to accommodate more participants, workshop sessions, and activities.
Everyone is affected by the problems and progress of science. Thus, we need an inclusive community that welcomes and engages all voices in the scientific dialogue. This symposium advances the national discussion about how to achieve inclusive public engagement with science. We strive to include all voices here. We commune to find solutions for all.Symposium Code of Conduct
