How have anthropologists forged careers in government and non-governmental organizations? How have they used their academic training in anthropology to pursue projects such as community-based conservation and sustainable development, the protection and management of national forests and grasslands, and the conversion of a military post to public use?

Come and hear a panel of Stanford alumni with advanced degrees in anthropology discuss their work in public sector organizations.

Susan Charnley (Ph.D. Anthropology 1994) is Research Social Scientist with the USDA Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station.

Liz Clevenger (BA Archaeology 2003; MA Cultural and Social Anthropology 2004) is Curator at the Presidio Trust in San Francisco.

Brodie Ferguson (Ph.D. Anthropology 2010) is founder and CEO of Anthrotect, LLC, a social enterprise dedicated to making conservation a viable economic alternative for forest-dependent communities.
