Update on Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity Actions

SCBNA actively engages with representatives of federal and state agencies, NGOs, and other professional societies to work towards increasing diversity and inclusion in the field of conservation science. SCBNA President-Elect Jessa Madosky is leading up a new SCBNA Equity, Inclusion and Diversity Committee which will help us advance this important work despite policy changes occurring under the new US administration. SCBNA, with Jessa as our representative, has joined the new national Diversity Joint Venture (a partnership with Federal, State, NGO, Universities, and Scientific societies to increase the diversity in the conservation workforce) as a founding partner. SCBNA is also networking with and supporting new groups such as the 500 Women Scientists and the March for Science in calling for support of and respect for science and scientists (as well as inclusivity in the sciences).
