The American Fisheries Society (AFS) established a career achievement award, named after the first female AFS president, Dr. Emmeline Moore (1927-1928), to recognize efforts of an individual member in the promotion of demographic diversity in the Society. In 2020, Dr. Ivan Arismendi of Oregon State University won this prestigious award at the AFS Virtual Annual Meeting.
This podcast (Part 1 of 2) is a recording of Dr. Arismendi's spring seminar presentation to students, faculty, and guests within the Department of Forestry and Environmental Conservation at Clemson University. Dr. Arismendi discusses in detail examples of unconscious bias, he paints a picture of our profession through published research and statistics, and provides important messages for listeners. Have a listen and be looking out for Part 2 where we dive deep into discussion with Dr. Arismendi in a follow-up episode!
