The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center’s (SESYNC) announces a new workshop for PhD students hosted in partnership with the Ecological Society of America’s Strategies for Ecology Education, Diversity, and Sustainability (SEEDS) program. The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Socio-Environmental Synthesis Research Workshop will be an interactive experience that helps PhD students build skills in team-based, socio-environmental (S-E) synthesis. We invite current PhD students from a wide range of under-represented experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds to apply.

This workshop will be held March 24–27, 2020 at SESYNC in Annapolis, Maryland. We kindly ask that you explore this opportunity online at and share this information with currently enrolled first- or second-year PhD students who are in the ecological, environmental, and social sciences.  (Third- and fourth-year students will be considered on a case-by-case basis and should reach out to SESYNC staff before applying). Attendees should demonstrate a strong interest in bridging scholarly disciplines, conducting data-driven, use-inspired synthesis research, and harnessing diversity, equity, and inclusion principles and practices to collaboratively solve pressing socio-environmental issues.

There is no cost to attend, and SESYNC will provide travel and accommodation support for this workshop. Deadline to apply is January, 21 2019.
