It takes every type of person there is to educate the public on environmental issues these days. That's why I'm celebrating an editor, an independent journalist, and an academic as I contribute to SEJ in honor of their dedicated efforts.
Gloria Gonzalez, managing editor of energy and environment at Industry Dive, recently stepped up when we needed to fill a board seat and brought along with her a financial acumen to our Finance Committee work, led by the equally dedicated Sadie Babits of the Cronkite News/Arizona PBS newsroom.
Bernardo H. Motta, assistant professor of journalism at Roger Williams University, is dedicated to cultivating diversity amid a new generation of journalism students and across the industry, always looking to lift others up.
I hope you'll join me in thanking them for their work. Pause to consider the voices that inform your knowledge of the natural world, and then consider contributing — no amount too small nor too big! — to SEJ today.
President, SEJ Board of Directors
