Careers in Conservation: Pathways to Work in Preservation of Ecosystems and Biodiversity

Careers in Conservation is the Harvard College Conservation Society's annual conference, aimed at equipping college students with a passion for conservation work to pursue a career in this interdisciplinary field. The conference features inspiring keynote speakers and panelists, engaging workshops on different aspects of conservation, and networking opportunities with local professionals, organizations, and other students.

Workshop options will include sessions on Law & Policy, Government, Biology, Communications, and Finance. Representatives from various conservation-focused organizations, as well as some of our speakers, will be available to chat with attendees during the networking lunch.

This year's event line-up includes:

- A keynote address by Rand Wentworth, Louis Bacon Senior Fellow in Environmental Leadership at Harvard Kennedy School and President Emeritus of the Land Trust Alliance
- 5 engaging workshops: Conservation Law & Policy with Steve Small, Conservation Biology with Onja Razafindratsima, Conservation Government with Paul Phifer, Conservation Communications with Clarisse Hart, and Conservation Finance with Nathalie Woolworth
- An interdisciplinary panel with Dr. Kelly Kryc (Director of Marine Conservation Policy and Leadership at Anderson Cabot Center of Ocean Life), Dr. Richard Wrangham (Professor of Biological Anthropology at Harvard University), and Charles Tracy (Landscape Architect at the National Park Service)

This event is made possible by our generous sponsors: Harvard Forest, Harvard Office for Sustainability, Harvard Office of Careers Services, Harvard University Center for the Environment (HUCE), and Academics for Land Protection in New England (ALPiNE).
