EESI EarthTalks: A conversation about diversity in law, environmental science

November 02, 2020

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Law and the environmental sciences don’t seem to have much in common, but at Penn State there is a push to increase diversity and foster inclusion in both fields.

Danielle M. Conway, dean and Donald J. Farage Professor of Law, Penn State Dickinson Law; and Lee Kump, dean of the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences, will join EarthTalks for a conversation about initiatives to increase diversity among the faculty, staff and students in their respective colleges. The conversation, which is free and open to the public, will take place at 4 p.m. Monday, Nov. 9, and be broadcast via Zoom.

The conversation is part of the fall 2020 EESI EarthTalks series, “Changemaking made EESI: Fostering inclusive research communities in the Earth and environmental sciences.” The series explores new perspectives on initiatives that could increase diversity in environmental fields, with a particular slant toward Penn State’s College of Earth and Mineral Sciences.
