LTER Community-building seminars
Inviting all members of the LTER community who self-identify as a member of a group that is underrepresented in the network, their site, or their professional spaces to join a monthly conversation group. We propose to each month highlight the work of underrepresented researchers from a different region within our network and discuss a topic of general interest in a safe, professional, but casual setting.

Full series description and notes available on the LTER Network website:
