Attendees learned how to obtain a career with USGS and met USGS scientists across three different mission areas (Natural Hazards, Water Resources, and Ecosystems). The event began with an overview of the USGS from Southeast Regional Director Holly Weyers, followed by presentations from USGS Human Resources (Alicia Gomez) and the USGS Office of Diversity and Equal Opportunity (Patty Garcia and Preston Ford). The directors of each center provided an overview of the goals, philosophy, and the research conducted at each location. Then, attendees broke out into three topic-specific panel discussions featuring USGS science staff with expertise in Biology and Ecosystems (Andre Daniels, Laura D’Acunto, Melinda Martinez, Amy Teague) Coastal and Marine Hazards and Resources (Chris Moore, Donya Frank-Gilchrist, Jennifer Miselis), and Water Resources (Jason Bellino, Viviana Diaz, Christian Lopez Roque). The event registered approximately 550 students and early career scientists from 33 states and two territories (Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands).
