Networking Social for Applied (Non-Academic) Ethnobiology and Ethnobotany Scholars and Practitioners!
Wednesday, June 6, 12:20 to 1:20 pm | Inn Wisconsin room on the 2nd floor
Snacks and drinks provided | Bring your lunch!
Calling all: students, post-docs and early, mid or late career professionals (independent scholars, researchers and contractors) interested in non-academic career paths and/or work opportunities.
Join us for a networking event to foster connections and collaborations for practicing/applied ethnobiologists, economic botanists, ethnobotanists.
Ethnobiologists/ethnobotanists come from diverse fields (botany, anthropology, geography, medicine, nutrition, agriculture, art, architecture, etc.) and possess the knowledge, skills and experience to make critical contributions to: food security and sovereignty, natural and cultural resource management and historic preservation, climate change resilience and adaptation and environmental futures, nutrition, public health and medicine, natural product development and sustainability, wildfire prevention and response, to name only a few. Come meet with 10 Resources who will briefly share their experiences and background in applied work, the cross-over skills in natural-social sciences they bring to their projects, and where they see opportunities for attendees. The introductions will be followed by an activity giving everyone a chance to circulate and meet the Resources and other participants to exchange ideas and build connections.
