Dr. Mary Blair gave a presentation at Wilson on Nov. 14, focusing on a lack of diversity in the conservation workforce, why certain groups are underrepresented and what can be done about it. Her presentation, “Women and Diversity in Science: An Imperative for Biodiversity Conservation,” took place in Patterson Lounge in Laird Hall. Blair, a post-doctoral fellow at the Center for Biodiversity and Conservation (CBC) at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, is the granddaughter of Calvin H.
