Event Description: This is a plenary where CSEE members (and of course ESA members too!) are invited for a plenary talk by the recipient of the CSEE Presidential award. The CSEE President’s Award for Societal Engagement recognizes and celebrates the contributions of leading scientists in the areas of policy, education, community science projects, scientific outreach, and EDI initiatives. The awardee typically epitomizes the values of CSEE with respect to promoting ecology and evolution, its commitment to EDI, and mentoring the next generation of scientists. " If that's too long, just strike the second sentence. This year's winner is Dr. John Reynolds, Simon Fraser University.
