profession can better embody justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion
(JEDI). These conversations will center around JEDI, access, and
sustainability in the geosciences, as we seek to advance scientific
discovery, rigor, and integrity and solve Earth’s challenges as a
geoscience community. Each webinar will be moderated by a recipient of
the Randolph

Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) participants.
