Communicating science in a post-truth world

The contentious 2016 U.S. presidential election brought the terms “post-truth” and “fake news” into the limelight. How can scientists and others best contribute to public dialogue and decisions in a world in which facts hold less power in public debate? Beyond spouting facts and data, or even telling stories, how can we improve public engagement and keep science relevant in this new landscape?

Panelists:
Kate Knuth, Director, Boreas Leadership Program, IonE;
Lewis Gilbert, Managing Director, IonE;
Gayle Golden, School of Journalism and Mass Communication, and
Maggie Koerth-Baker, Senior Science Reporter, FiveThirtyEight.
Panel discussion moderated by Todd Reubold, Communications Director, IonE
