This year’s Diversity Roundtable (aka Diversity Luncheon) will feature our ESA program leaders who will share their perspectives on “Collaborations across ESA programs to advance science, education and diversity”.
In line with the ESA meeting theme of Vital Connections in Ecology, the need for collaboration across disciplinary ideas, communities and spaces have never been more critical. ESA has a vibrant suite of programs including our meetings, publications and a wide range of activities designed by sections and chapters and grant-funded activities such as SEEDS. Our complex and changing world calls for novel approaches in research, engagement and leadership. How can we advance science, education and diversity through a collaborative model starting with our own programs, chapters and sections? How can we ensure that the next generation of ecologists remain supported throughout their careers in all sectors?
