Monday, October 12th, 1pm - Climate Change: What's Gender Got to Do With It? How Women Will Lead Us to a More Sustainable Future - Dr. Frances Riemer

Dr. Riemer will explore and discuss the many issues of social justice and gender inequity in a changing climate. This will include examining the higher risks and greater burdens on women from the impacts of climate change and the ways in which unequal participation in decision-making processes and labor markets compound these effects and prevent women from fully contributing to climate-related planning, policy-making, and implementation.

Friday, October 16th, 1pm - Food Choices & Climate Change: Diets That Make a Difference - Dr. Jolene Bowers

Dr. Jolene Bowers is a public health scientist with a PhD in molecular biology, specializing in the impact we have on our environment and influences our environment has on us, as we are all in a "One Health" ecosystem.

Tuesday, November 17th, 6pm - Hyperobjects and Teleconnections: Understanding how climate change is simultaneously a global and local phenomenon, and everyone's and no one's problem

How we think about and discuss climate change with others is possibly more important than what we do with our individual actions. Research shows that Americans are not comfortable talking about and discussing climate change or climate change solutions, in part because it is still such a polarizing issue. Understanding how climate change is an example of a hyperobject and a teleconnection, gives great insight into why climate deniers fail to perceive climate change and why they focus on the arguments they do.
