The Public Science Collaborative at Iowa State University will facilitate a virtual 90-minute workshop on Promoting Diverse and Inclusive Science with the AG2PI community to identify stakeholders and intended users of AG2P scholarship. The goal of this fast-paced and interactive workshop is to create a more inclusive, diverse, and human-centered approach to research that leverages the insights of underrepresented stakeholders to shape the questions we ask and promote future uptake of new discoveries by building trust with key partners. By intentionally incorporating diverse ideas, perspectives, and backgrounds in our teams, each step in the research process is improved. Person-centered approaches can help AG2P scholars more effectively communicate complex ideas to lay audiences.
