POSTPONED: Virtual CCST Expert Briefing on Carbon Sequestration

June 3, 2020 | ,  

Update June 9:

In recognition of and to support the grassroots academic movement to #ShutDownSTEM, #ShutDownAcademia, and #Strike4BlackLives on June 10th, CCST has postponed the planned virtual CCST Expert Briefing on Natural Pathways for Carbon Sequestration.

The #shutdownSTEM movement calls on those in the academic and STEM communities to stop doing “business as usual” and provides “the time for white and non-Black People of Color (NBPOC) to not only educate themselves, but to define a detailed plan of action to carry forward” in order to address anti-Black racism in academia and STEM.

At CCST, our team will continue development on our plan of action to build a more supportive and inclusive environment for Black scientists in our CCST community, as we commit to working with our community in the fight against anti-Black racism.
