Dawn Childs

I perform best in a diverse, high-paced, forward-thinking, creative, positive, empowering, relevant workplace. Leave no one behind: every person is unique and has unique contributions. I engage diverse people. My position is dynamic: engagement, outreach, diversity inclusion. I include, listen to, and learn from staff outside my work group, external friends, partners, and local communities.

I am a thrill-seeking person who enjoys outdoors activities near the water.

Research Interests

Diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in the workplace, science outreach, human dimensions, community involvement, safeguarding the rights of small communities who depend on hunting and commercial fishing for their livelihoods.
