Women + Watersheds = Communicating for Success  Across Aquatic Sectors

WAN Panel and Networking Session

Tuesday, June 5, 12:15-1:15 p.m


In today’s world of tweets, likes, and shares, it can be a challenge finding the best ways to effectively communicate about priorities across the marine, coastal, and freshwater fields. Whether you’re celebrating a victory for ocean protection or calling attention to flooding risks in coastal communities, it’s important to think about ways to amplify and educate in a manner that brings people together.  

Join the Women's Aquatic Network for a panel and networking opportunity at Capitol Hill Ocean Week to share ideas for successful communications on Tuesday, June 5, at 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in Hemisphere A of the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center.

Convened by the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation every June, CHOW brings together more than 600 national and global policymakers, scientists, scholars, businesses and conservation leaders to address pressing science, conservation, and management issues facing our ocean and Great Lakes.
