May 14, 2019
New Horizons in Conservation: Diversity, Equity, and Justice The second annual New Horizons in Conservation conference, held in Chicago on April 24 -26, built upon the success of the inaugural 2018 conference in Washington D.C. Through a full program of lectures, panel discussions, and workshops, more than 240 students, faculty, SEAS alumni, and leading conservation professionals—the majority of them people of color—gathered to understand the status of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within the environmental sector and assess critical gaps.

Now we are excited to invite you to register for the 2021 New Horizons in Conservation Conference! Registration is open to the public, visit https://yse.to/newhorizons

The conference is an annual gathering of students and early career professionals who are historically underrepresented in the environmental field and/ or committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the field. Conference attendees have opportunities to network, engage in hands-on workshops, and learn from leaders and visionaries in the environmental field.
