Public engagement is an increasing aspect of academic careers - and institutions are increasing their support for this like this workshop at UCL
Public Engagement Network: Public Engagement and your Academic Career
Celebrate the end of term with a Network session on the 3rd July that's all about the engagement you do, and how it can help support your academic career. You’ll be able to explore the ways Public Engagement could help you, and we’ll be on hand to discuss how UCL's Public Engagement Team can support your work.
Worth checking if your institution runs similar events.
