Dr. Thomas RaShad Easley is not only Assistant Dean of Community and Inclusion at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, he’s a hip hop artist, a campus minister, and a professor. “When people hear about all the things I’m doing they say, ‘Oh, you’re doing too much!’” “When I hear that I laugh and say, ‘I’m not doing too much. It’s the same message — I’m just changing up the platform.’” Join this conversation with Thomas as he shares his experience bringing his full self, as much as possible, to his work.
Thomas will share:
-bringing hip hop and conservation together for hip hop forestry
-managing expectations, people, and disappointment in the workplace
