How to Tell Your Story (panel discussion)
September 19 at 1:45 pm - 3:00 pm
How can you be a better storyteller? People tend to remember what they feel rather than what they know. Local communication experts will explore the power of character-rich storytelling driven by data for transportation researchers, planners, engineers, and stakeholders. The media ecosystem is constantly evolving, and there are different strategies that challenges the traditional pathways and amplifies the voices of communities. What are some of the more successful strategies you’ve seen that circumvents the traditional pathways? Join the panelists for an interactive roundtable session, and leave feeling more confident in telling the story of your transportation project or research.
Event is part of the Transportation and Communities Summit 2019 (September 19 – 20, 2019 at Portland State University). This annual event in Portland, Oregon connects national mobility-focused research to equitable practice and policy through breakout panels, Lightning Talks, student posters, skill-building workshops, and a keynote from urban data scientist Ben Wellington.
