This is the third year of the conference. The New Horizons in Conservation Conference is a virtual event that focuses on students, faculty, professionals in the conservation field who have been historically underrepresented in the environmental workforce. The conference brings together people of color and white allies who are interested in enhancing diversity in academic environmental programs as well as in environmental organizations.
The conference features an impressive array of nationally recognized speakers who will share their expertise on environmental justice, climate change, people of color in nature, health, energy justice, water justice, and institutional diversity. There will also be workshops on topics such as salary negotiations, effective job interviewing, grantmaking, and grant seeking. There will be opportunities to meet speakers, workshop leaders, and other conference participants in virtual networking sessions.
Undergraduates, graduate students, and young professionals are invited to participate in poster sessions. See the conference website for further details on how to submit an abstract for the poster sessions.
