Incorporating Climate Change, Equity, and Risk into the Existing Workforce
Tuesday, July 13, 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. MDT
Accelerated climate change, increased disaster losses, and social injustice call for the need to incorporate equity and hazard workforce skills into roles that already exist. Taking inventory of existing practices for decision-making, research, and practitioner career paths is a start. Panelists in this session will discuss how efforts in the existing operational and research workforces can be expanded to better support underserved communities, enhance tribal relationships, and combat climate change and environmental injustice.
