Mondays at 4:00 p.m. via Zoom
Understanding how earth and environmental systems operate and interact with human systems is crucial for the global community, but the personnel working within these fields does not represent a highly diverse population. As our environmental problems become more globalized and more challenging, we need all perspectives to tackle both fundamental and applied environmental problems.
The EESI EarthTalks series “Changemaking made EESI: Fostering inclusive research communities in the Earth and environmental sciences” will explore new perspectives on initiatives that could increase diversity in environmental fields, with a particular slant toward Penn State’s College of Earth and Mineral Sciences (EMS). The seminars, which are free and open to the public, take place at 4 p.m. on Mondays via Zoom.
