GCSC Seminar: Jory Lerback “Inclusive Sustainable Resilience”

“What is “Inclusive Sustainable Resilience”, and how does my iso-bio-geo-chemistry skillset move us towards these ideals? Stories from a groundwater-reliant scientist”

Abstract: I first review what resilience and diversity means in the intersecting diversity/equity/inclusion and sustainability/environmental spaces. I illustrate how my work in groundwater chemistry and in interdisciplinary teams has led to pathways for 1) fundamental understanding of groundwater dynamics, and 2) actionable insights for caretakers of water and wetlands. Lastly, I give some additional context to how my research and activism on scientific processes and team-formation have been used to create more inclusive and equitable spaces.

Jory Lerback is a former University of Utah Global Change and Sustainability Fellow and is now a postdoctoral researcher studying managed aquifer recharge at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Division of Nuclear and Chemical Sciences.
