Join DCH for Hip Hop Forestry with Dr. Thomas R. Easley, the Assistant Dean of Community and Inclusion at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. Dr. Easley has spent most of his career as a diversity professional, focusing on the recruitment, retention, and diverse talent in natural resource disciplines, and as a forester, working with landowners and citizens on land management and stewardship. His presentation will focus on the important intersections that exist between music, race, and natural resources. Special thanks to our event sponsors - Wilmington Flower Market, New Castle County, and New Castle County Council.
Dr. Easley served as the Diversity Director of the College of Natural Resources at NC State University where he taught courses, advised students, and supported faculty and staff on programming ensuring they are inclusive to all populations. Now, as the Assistant Dean of Community and Inclusion at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, he combines his professions along with his passions of art and ministry to lead the diversity efforts in the school. Dr. Easley is also an Eagle Scout (Boy Scouts of America), a forester, and a musician, known as RaShad in the world of music. He holds a Ph.D. in Adult Education from NC State University, an M.S. in Forest Genetics from Iowa State University, and a B.S. in Forest Science from Alabama A&M University.
