Measuring the effects of science advocacy is a challenge. To effectively allocate your resources, this webinar will explore ways to gauge performance against short- and long-term advocacy goals, manage expectations, and identify gaps in science advocacy metrics. Speakers will touch on how to evaluate advocacy outcomes and tailor your messages and approaches in light of that assessment.
