#ESA2018

The 2018 ESA annual meeting (#ESA2018) in New Orleans provides a significant opportunity to plan scicomm-related sessions that take into account ethics, inclusivity, community and ecosystem resilience, the science of scicomm, and many more themes of critical importance to our Section, ESA, and society more broadly.

Mark your ESA2018 calendar for the following workshops and sessions. Scroll to the bottom for sessions specifically related to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and career success. If you know of a session that should be added to the list, please let us know!

Of note is the joint mixer our section has planned with the ESA Policy Section and Union of Concerned Scientists at The Courtyard Brewery at 1020 Erato St. on Monday, 8/6, from 6:30-8:30 PM. Please join us!
