HopkinsatHomeApril 12, April 12, MondayBrought to you by Hopkins at Home and the Environmental Sciences and Policy Masters Program Follow us on Twitter to join the conversation: @HopkinsatHome, #HopkinsatHome REGISTER HERE to tune in on Monday, April 12, 12 - 1:30 PM ET ABOUT THE PROGRAM Leadership is the art of motivating and shepherding groups of people to act toward achieving a common goal. In a business setting, this can mean directing workers and colleagues with a strategy to meet the company's needs. Right now, developing environmental leaders within the private and public sectors is a global priority. Without strong leaders, we won’t respond effectively to the challenges of climate change, nor be able to chart a path towards a regenerative society. Through the personal stories of our three guests, our discussion will explore what makes a great leader and serve as a dialogue for people who aspire to be strong, impactful environmental leaders in their families, communities, companies and/or on a bigger scale. Join us for this discussion with Dr. Jane Goodall, Ryan Gellert, and Lisa Jackson, with an introduction from Dr. Jerry Burgess, Q&A led by Dr. Jenn da Rosa, and moderated by Scott Atkinson. For more information about the Johns Hopkins University Environmental Sciences and Policy Masters Program, click here.  ABOUT THE PANELISTS AND MODERATOR Equipped with little more than a notebook, binoculars, and her fascination with wildlife, Jane Goodall braved a realm of unknowns to give the world a remarkable window into humankind’s closest living relatives. Through nearly 60 years of groundbreaking work, Dr. Jane Goodall has not only shown us the urgent need to protect chimpanzees from extinction; she has also redefined species conservation to include the needs of local people and the environment. Today she travels the world, speaking about the threats facing chimpanzees and environmental crises, urging each of us to take action on behalf of all living things and planet we share. For more information about Dr. Jane Goodall and her work, visit https://www.janegoodall.org/.  Ryan Gellert is chief executive officer (CEO) of Patagonia Works and Patagonia, Inc. Prior to his appointment to this global role, Ryan spent six years as Patagonia’s general manager of Europe, the Middle East and Africa. During that time, he elevated Patagonia to a position of leadership in Europe’s outdoor industry and environmental communities, overseeing all sales, marketing, environmental and operational activities for the brand. Under Ryan’s stewardship, Patagonia launched its first global environmental campaign around a European initiative: Save the Blue Heart of Europe, an international crusade to protect the last wild rivers of Europe from over 3,000 planned hydropower projects. He also launched Patagonia Action Works in the region, an online tool to connect people with local and global environmental groups, allowing them to take action on causes they care about. Ryan has lived and worked in the United States, Asia and Europe. Before joining Patagonia, he spent 15 years at Black Diamond Equipment, where he held a number of roles, including brand president, vice president of supply chain management and managing director of Black Diamond Asia. An avid climber and backcountry snowboarder, Ryan has climbed and ridden all over the world. He has extensive experience working with direct action environmental groups, having served on the boards of Access Fund, Protect Our Winters, the European Outdoor Group and the Soil Heroes Foundation. In addition, he was a founding individual member of 1% for the Planet. Ryan holds a JD from the S.J. Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah; an MBA from the Florida Institute of Technology; and a BSBA in finance from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Lisa Jackson is Apple’s vice president of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives, reporting to CEO Tim Cook. Lisa oversees Apple’s efforts to minimize its impact on the environment by addressing climate change through renewable energy and energy efficiency, using greener materials and inventing new ways to conserve precious resources. She is also responsible for Apple’s education policy programs, its product accessibility work and its worldwide government affairs function. From 2009 to 2013, Lisa served as Administrator of the US Environmental Protection Agency. Appointed by President Barack Obama, she focused on reducing greenhouse gases, protecting air and water quality, preventing exposure to toxic contamination, and expanding outreach to communities on environmental issues. She has also served as chief of staff to New Jersey Governor Jon S. Corzine and as commissioner of New Jersey’s Department of Environmental Protection. Lisa holds a master’s degree in Chemical Engineering from Princeton University and a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from Tulane University. She serves on the boards of Tulane, SF Film, Conservation International and Emily’s List. Scott Atkinson, MS (A&S '20), serves as Managing Partner & Co-Head of Heidrick & Struggles’ Global Sustainability Office, where he places Chief Executives, Board of Directors and senior leaders within companies and organizations that focus on advancing environmental and social impact initiatives across the globe.  Recent he has had the opportunity to work within clients including All Raise, AppHarvest, Impossible Foods, Indigo Agriculture, Jane Goodall Institute, Kite Hill, National Geographic Society, Planet Labs, San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance and Virgin Galactic. Additionally, Scott serves as Managing Partner for H&S’ Global Venture Capital Practice. Outside of work Scott is Chair of the board for Earth League International (ELI), an innovative hybrid non-profit organization consisting of former FBI and CIA officers, analysts, and undercover investigators who protect nature by investigating and exposing wildlife criminals worldwide, including poachers, traffickers, and corrupt government officials.

The Partnership’s goal is to create more than 20 Surf Protected Areas around the world, covering more than 1 million hectares of coral reef, mangrove, coastline, and coastal forest by 2023. Scott earned a masters of environmental sciences & policy, with a concentration in conservation biology, from Johns Hopkins University and a B.A. in history from Middlebury College where he concentrated his studies on the modern civil rights movement. ABOUT THE WELCOME AND Q&A PRESENTERS Jerry L. Burgess, Ph.D., is Director of the MS in Environmental Sciences and Policy as well as the Geographic Information Systems masters and certificate programs. Dr. Burgess received his doctorate in Ecology from Johns Hopkins University. His research interests are highly interdisciplinary utilizing the disciplines of biology, ecology, geology and soil science to explore community dynamics and invasive ecology in urban, rural and forested landscapes. Trained as a metamorphic and structural petrologist, in his early research he has used petrologic and geochemical tools to investigate igneous and metamorphic rocks and relate their petrogenesis to the growth and evolution the Canadian Appalachians. A great deal of his career has been spent skirting two different professional spheres: one as an educator where he served as the STEM science chair in various school systems; and the other sphere has been spent solving environmental issues such as soil and groundwater remediation. As an educator, his topics of focus include bringing research results into teaching and learning and inculcating inquiry-based learning into broader use in the geosciences and public school settings. Recently he has become engaged in the structure and dynamics of geoecosystems. In particular, seeking to understand the edaphic relationship between geologic substrate, soils and plants using a complimentary suite of approaches that integrate field observations with novel techniques (e.g. stable isotopes) and controlled environmental systems (e.g. growth chambers, greenhouse settings) to address questions that intersect plant physiological ecology, soil ecology and geology in an ecosystem context. Dr. Burgess has worked in a variety of academic, research, educational and consultant based settings. His current projects include conservation threats to edaphic ecosystems and tectonics of the Appalachians. For more information on current research areas, please visit his personal research site. Dr. Jenn da Rosa, Ed.D. is the Program Coordinator for JHU Energy and Environmental Programs. Dr. da Rosa has a background in geology, oceanography, and science education, specializing in climate change misconceptions and cognition. She advocates for the use of conceptual change strategies to address earth and environmental science misconceptions.

April 21, April 21, WednesdaySponsored by Lifelong Learning Do you know what the key to advancing gender equality is? It’s men. Women are at a disadvantage. At home, they often face an unequal division of household chores and childcare. In the workplace, they deal with lower pay, lack of credit for their contributions, roadblocks to a promotion, sexual harassment, and more. Gender-in-the-workplace experts and co-authors David Smith and Brad Johnson make the business case for male engagement in gender equality while integrating why it is suitable for both men and women. Using social science evidence, they explore the possible challenges of cross-gender professional relationships. Together, in this deep-dive webinar, they will provide the “how-to” for men, women, and organizational leaders who want to be intentional, inclusive, and excellent allies, leveraging mentorship, sponsorship, and workplace partnership to create a more diverse workforce. About the authors: David Smith, Ph.D., is co-author of Good Guys: How Men Can Be Better Allies for Women in the Workplace, Athena Rising: How and Why Men Should Mentor Women, numerous journal articles and book chapters that focus on gender and the workplace. A former navy pilot, Dr. Smith is currently an Associate Professor of Sociology in the College of Leadership and Ethics at the U.S. Naval War College.  W.

May 02, May 2, SundayThank you for your interest in attending Magda Martí's 4th annual fundraiser benefiting the Johns Hopkins Precision Medicine Center of Excellence for Multiple Sclerosis on Sunday, May 2, 2021, at 2 pm ET. In the last three years, we have raised over $100,000 and at this year's event aim to secure an additional $50,000. Your support will get us closer to this goal! Johns Hopkins faculty, Drs. Peter Calabresi, Ellen Mowry, and Pavan Bhargava, will discuss their latest research on progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) and also how COVID-19 is impacting patients with MS. Dr. Calabresi’s research, Next generation biomarkers for progressive MS, is a five-year to study to identify and validate next generation biomarkers of non-inflammatory disease progression (NIDP) in MS to elucidate novel mechanisms and pathways of injury and to develop surrogate outcomes for testing novel therapies for progressive MS (PMS). Dr. Mowry’s study, HomE-based Actigraphy to predict changes in neuroLogical function in Multiple Sclerosis (HEAL-MS), looks at how wearable fitness trackers, alone or in combination with other currently-employed phase 2 trial outcome measures, will improve the prediction of clinical disability progression, setting the stage for meaningful breakthroughs in treatments for PMS. Dr. Bhargava’s study, Bile acid metabolism is altered in MS and supplementation ameliorates neuroinflammation, focuses on how bile acids are cholesterol metabolites that can signal through receptors on cells throughout the body, including in the CNS and the immune system.

Hopkins Symphony Orchestra Evenings - Star-Crossed: Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet and Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story
May 06, May 6, ThursdaySponsored by Lifelong Learning Have you been told that you take criticism too personally? Do you judge yourself too harshly? We are taught to hide our emotions for fear of being perceived as “unprofessional.” But the truth is that the traits associated with highly sensitive individuals—empathy, self-awareness, critical thinking, communication, and intuition—are the “soft skills” that will be the most valuable in the workplace of the future. In this deep-dive webinar, human behavior expert and executive coach Melody Wilding, LMSW, will draw on decades of research and offer neuroscience-based strategies that individuals and organizations can use to recognize sensitivity as a superpower, not a detriment. You will learn concrete steps to help what she calls “Sensitive Strivers” – empathetic, driven individuals—break free from stress, perfectionism, and self-doubt to use sensitivity as a strength, and work and lead effectively, now and in the future world of work. About the Author Melody Wilding, LMSW is the author of Trust Yourself: Stop Overthinking and Channel Your Emotions for Success at Work (Coming May 2021) and has coached hundreds of private clients, from CEOs and Fortune 500 executives to leaders from the US Department of Education, the Federal Reserve, and the United Nations.

MEET OUR SPEAKERS Carlos Sanchez-Guitierrez The music of Carlos Sanchez-Gutierrez has been described by the press as, “vigorously organized and highly visceral…neither eclectic nor post-modern nor owing allegiance to any passing fashion.” Born in Mexico City in 1964, he studied at the Peabody Conservatory, Yale University, Princeton, and Tanglewood under Henri Dutilleux, Jacob Druckman, and Martin Bresnick. He is Professor of Composition at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. Among the many awards he has received are the 2007 Barlow Prize, a Finalist Prize at the 2004 Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestral Composer Competition, as well as the 2003 Lee Ettelson Composition Award. He has also been honored in recent years with awards and fellowships from the Koussevitzky, Guggenheim, Fromm, Rockefeller, Camargo and Bogliasco Foundations. He was the 2000-01 American Academy of Arts and Letters Charles Ives Fellow and has received two B.M.I. Composition Awards, the Mozart Medal from the governments of Mexico and Austria, and a Fulbright Fellowship. Sanchez-Gutierrez’s work is performed and recorded frequently in the U.S, Latin America, Europe and Asia. Recently, Sanchez-Gutierrez has been Composer-in-Residence at several international festivals: Puentes Mexico/España, Chihuahua International Festival, Michoacan International New Music Festival, S.L.A.M. Festival in Seattle, as well as with the Binghamton Philharmonic (through a grant from the New York State Fund for Music.) Among Sanchez-Gutierrez’s most recently completed works are “Diaries” (a commission from the Orchestra of the League of Composers/ISCM),  “Memos” (a Barlow Endowment-commissioned work for the percussion ensembles SO, Kroumata and Nexus); “Five Memos” (a Fromm Music Foundation commission, written for Eighth Blackbird); …Ex Machina, for marimba, piano and orchestra (NY State Music Fund for the Binghamton Philharmonic); and “[…and of course Henry the Horse…] Dances the…” (Koussevitzky Music Foundation in the Library of Congress.) Linda Dusman Linda Dusman’s compositions and sonic art explore the richness of contemporary life, from the personal to the political. Her work has been awarded by the International Alliance for Women in Music, Meet the Composer, the Swiss Women’s Music Forum, the American Composers Forum, the International Electroacoustic Music Festival of Sao Paulo, Brazil, the Ucross Foundation, and the State of Maryland in 2004, 2006, and 2011 (in both the Music: Composition and the Visual Arts: Media categories). In 2009 she was honored as a Mid- Atlantic Arts Foundation Fellow for a residency at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. She was invited to serve as composer in residence at the New England Conservatory’s Summer Institute for Contemporary Piano in 2003. In the fall of 2006 Dr. Dusman was a Visiting Professor at the Conservatorio di musica “G. Nicolini” in Piacenza, Italy, and while there also lectured at the Conservatorio di musica “G. Verdi” in Milano. She recently received a Maryland Innovation Initiative grant for her development of Octava, a real-time program note system (octavaonline.com.) Linda Dusman’s recent works have been inspired by the landscape of Cape Ann, Massachusetts, where she vacations each summer on Folly Cove. Lake, Thunder was premiered at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC in 2015. Thundersnow was commissioned by the Italian Trio des Alpes in 2014, and premiered in Genoa, Italy that year. Her work for piccolo and alto flute An Unsubstantial Territory was recorded by the inHale Duo, and has received many performance throughout the United States and Europe. Piano Interiors was Dusman’s response to the 2012 Cape Ann Museum’s Soliloquy in Dogtown exhibition of works by Marsden Hartley. Her works are published by I Resound Press and Neuma Publications, and are recorded on the NEUMA, Capstone, and New Albany labels. As a sound artist, Dusman began experimenting with spatialized texts in the 1980s with a passage from Gertrude Stein’s The Making of Americans. Originally designed for quadraphonic tape, Becoming Becoming Gertrude explored the rhythms of Stein’s simple language in a dynamic evolution. Becoming Becoming Gertrude 2, available on Capstone Records, presents a stereo re-mix of the piece. Subsequent works include an interactive installation inspired by environmental decline using bird distress calls (and a voice was heard in Rama), and Mixed Messages, which uses telephone answering machine messages and an antique telephone switchboard as an interactive device. Mixed Messages was premiered at the University of New Mexico Museum of Art in 2005, and locations for other installations include the Pierogi 2000 gallery in New York, the alternative alternative exhibition on Wall Street, Dartmouth College, and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Magnificat 4: Ida Ida was released on the Sounding Out! DVD in 5.1 surround by Everglade Records in 2010. As a frequent contributor to the literature on contemporary music and performance, Dr. Dusman’s articles have appeared in the journals Link, Perspectives of New Music, and Interface, as well as a number of anthologies. She was a founding editor of the journal Women and Music: A Journal of Gender and Culture, and is as an associate editor for Perspectives of New Music. She is founding editor of I Resound Press, a digital archive for music by women composers (iresound.umbc.edu). Former holder of the Jeppeson Chair in Music at Clark University and the Liptiz Chair at UMBC, she is currently Professor of Music and Chair of the Department of Music at UMBC in Baltimore.

Law Affinity May 26, May 26, WednesdaySponsored by the Hopkins Alumni in Law Affinity and the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School Join us as our panel discusses the proposed new legislation aimed at dismantling corporate consolidation, which could have stark consequences for the tech industry. The key regulatory bodies tasked with overseeing tech giants, the Federal Trade Commission and the Justice Department's antitrust division, would receive more resources and power under the new legislation. This legislation, called the Competitive and Antitrust Law Enforcement Reform Act, would also create new standards for dominant companies trying to acquire nascent rivals. 2021 could be a turning point in regulating the industry.
