Your success as a scholar can depend on communicating your work to a range of audiences—to non-experts as well as potential collaborators. Developing an effective, brief elevator pitch can help you secure funding, impact policy, and mentor others. Learn about the elements of successful elevator pitches, including tips for telling stories and connecting with listeners who are not experts in your subject area. This session will be led by Katie Bailey, Senior Associate Director, Foundation & Corporate Relations, and Scott Ummel, Senior Associate Director, Outreach and Volunteer Engagement, UChicago Medicine and Biological Sciences.
