Building an Inclusive Ocean Mapping Community

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Diversity and inclusion should be a central part of the ocean mapping community conversation.  There have been many advances made in the last several years - but there is still a great deal to go.  

Join this session to hear the panelists' perspectives and experiences with respect to inclusion in the marine science space. A discussion on working towards more inclusivity, breaking down barriers and stereotypes, and coming up with lasting solutions will form a part of this session.

Attendees are encouraged to participate via chat and open discussion with the panelists.
