Virtual event to celebrate diverse soil science future
December 4th 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Members of the UW–Madison community are invited to participate in a celebration of World Soil Day 2020 that will focus on a diverse soil science future. There is an upsurge in soil science and a new generation of soil scientists is being trained. The soil science community has low diversity and there is a dire need for change. Presentations and discussions will center on two intertwined topics: (1) diversity and inclusion in soil science and (2) the future of soil science. Each session will include a keynote and short presentations with a Q&A session followed by a discussion at the end. This virtual event will help participants think about how to be more inclusive, diverse, and forward-thinking about the fundamental importance of diversity to advance soil science.
