Diversity Discussion Panel now live!

In November 2018, Icon staged their first-ever Town Hall Debate alongside their Annual General Meeting, hosted by the incredible team behind the C Word podcast. The session was broadcasted online by Facebook live and the C Word’s website.

Thanks to special guest panelists Jenny Matthiason, Kloe Rumsey and Christina Rozeik of The C-Word Podcast, as well as British/Barbadian conservator Nerys Rudder and Emerging Professional Rebecca Plumbe, the conference was a success- with nearly 2,500 people reached through the Facebook broadcast alone!

The panel tackled the subject of “Diversity in Conservation”, answering questions from the live audience as well as those following it online on social media.

Whether you missed out or want to revisit the discussion, you can now listen to the full recording on the C Word’s website (or the Facebook Live video!)
