2021 Keynote - Parker McMullen Bushman

Diversity, equity, and inclusion have become buzzwords that have been placed strategically in organizational mandates, inspired the formation of DEI committees, and/or simply sparked critical dialogue around organizational culture. But do we know what these words really mean and how do we put this work into action in the environmental field. In this session participants will learn how we incorporate DEI principles into our work and the importance of creating welcoming spaces so that all people may become environmental stewards who will advocate for and protect our most precious public resources – our land, water, trees, open spaces and wildlife.
