About the event
Identifying and implementing effective conservation is often argued to require the best available evidence. However, making evidence-informed decisions in conservation is not without challenges. In this series co-hosted by the Fuller Science for Nature program and the Alliance for Conservation Evidence and Sustainability, we will discuss the factors that shape how individuals and organizations make decisions in conservation and explore pathways for creating both the structures and culture that enable evidence-informed decision-making. This five-part seminar series will invite participants to explore the diversity of thought within conservation and beyond for insights and ideas for how we can improve the science/knowledge/practice interface. Each seminar is designed to be a dialogue, inviting the speakers and listeners on a journey where we collectively explore how we can make more equitable and impactful decisions in service of a better future for all people and nature. Seminar Three: Challenge Assumptions, Reckon With Failure This seminar will dive into the individual factors that can help or hinder evidence-informed decision-making, and explore how creating the regular time and space to challenge our own biases and reckon with our past mistakes can help us become more mindful, engaged, and strategic about where and how we make conservation decisions. Speakers: Dr. Allison Catalano, Sequoia Climate Fund Dr. Yuta Masuda, The Nature Conservancy Dr. Madeleine McKinnon, Philanthropic Services Hillspire
