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 200 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.
