National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis

Equity Justice Seminar

Join us for our Winter/Spring 2021 Seminar Series

This seminar series was motivated by recent conversations about how we at NCEAS can foster diversity and inclusion within our scientific community, while also designing research questions and approaches to promote environmental justice and equity across our broader community. The speakers will share their research approaches and findings as they relate to the intersections of ecology, environmental data science, equity, and environmental justice.
