  • Thursday, June 11th 4p ET/1p PT - Zoya Goodwin "Turning the Tide: Rising Voices of Communities of Color" (REGISTER HERE)


  • Thursday, July 9th 12p ET/9a PT - Alba Estrada López "Culturally Relevant Environmental Education Begins with a Diverse, Equitable, and Inclusive Environmental Field" (REGISTER HERE)

In her second year of her fellowship, Alba focused on building on the efforts of increasing the cultural relevancy of Point Blue's Students and Teachers Restoring A Watershed (STRAW) program by decreasing language barriers and expanding programming to a new demographic of students in community colleges. Through multiple trainings regarding diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), Alba will share how she has been incorporating in existing and new programming this information, ultimately reasoning that the DEI efforts are necessary and complementary to creating more culturally relevant environmental education and field. 

  • Thursday, July 9th 1p ET/10a PT - Kalina Browne (REGISTER HERE)
