Over the next six months, the Foundation for Advancement in Conservation (FAIC) will be hosting a series of webinars and a workshop on Social Justice and Conservation. Conservation ethics is a topic of perennial interest and central importance to conservators. In the last few months there has been special attention on ethics within our profession as we grapple with the reality of racial inequity in conservation and in wider society. This series provides participants with opportunities to learn from diverse speakers on critical issues that explore the intersection between conservation and social justice.
"Contested Monuments," the first webinar in the series, will take place on Monday, October 26 at 4:00-5:30pm Eastern Time. Registration is free and all are welcome to join the conversation to explore the competing values conservation professionals may face surrounding the removal of contested monuments.
The panelists for this event are Dr. Renee Ater, Brent Leggs, and Ada Pickston. The panel will be moderated by Nylah Byrd and Laleña Vellanoweth.
