Sierra Nevada Alliance Monthly Webinar: Women in Science with Megan Joyce
March 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join the Alliance and Megan Joyce, founder of Kestrel Blue Digital, as we bring together a panel of women in science and conservation to celebrate the people behind the research, advocacy, and policy that helps protect our world.
We are excited to have a panel of incredible women with us for this webinar. Panelists include:
- Susan Britting: Executive Director, Sierra Forest Legacy
- Jenny Hatch: Executive Director, Sierra Nevada Alliance
- Ali Meders-Knight: Master TEK practitioner with the Machoodpha Tribe
- Beth Pratt: California Regional Executive Director, National Wildlife Federation
- Meg Seifert: Executive Director, Headwaters Science Institute
We will elevate the stories of women who work in this space to show challenges, and the power that can come from having diverse voices, perspectives, and experiences. Often, we talk about our work and publications or job titles, and talk less about who we are as science professionals. This panel allows women to share the varied paths taken, and how they engage in their education, collaboration, communication, advocacy and policy work.
Register for the webinar here.
