Event description

Description

Careers in Conservation (CiC) is an annual event, hosted by the Harvard College Conservation Society, which provides inspiration, career advice, and connections for students from Harvard and nearby Boston area universities who are interested in pursuing careers in any of many disciplines within the field of conservation. CiC includes renowned speakers from the field, various workshops for students to gain more information on various subfields within conservation, and an interdisciplinary panel. We are also expanding our networking opportunities this year, inviting more alumni and representatives from various organizations in the hopes of connecting with students with potential job/internship opportunities and mentors. Lunch will be provided free to attendees.

This year's event line-up includes:

- A keynote address by Rand Wentworth, Louis Bacon Senior Fellow in Environmental Leadership at Harvard Kennedy School and President Emeritus of the Land Trust Alliance
- 5 engaging workshops: Conservation Law & Policy with Steve Small, Conservation Biology with Onja Razafindratsima, Conservation Government with Paul Phifer, Conservation Communications with Clarisse Hart, and Conservation Finance with Nathalie Woolworth
- An interdisciplinary panel with Dr. Kelly Kryc (Director of Marine Conservation Policy and Leadership at Anderson Cabot Center of Ocean Life), Dr. Richard Wrangham (Professor of Biological Anthropology at Harvard University), and Charles Tracy (Landscape Architect at the National Park Service)

This event is made possible by our generous sponsors: Harvard Forest, Harvard Office for Sustainability, Harvard Office of Careers Services, Harvard University Center for the Environment (HUCE), and Academics for Land Protection in New England (ALPiNE).

Please reach out to harvardconservation@gmail.com with any questions. We look forward to seeing you there!
