Since 2016, the CELC network has gathered for four in-person workshops to engage in collaborative discussions about assessing progress, collaborating on initiatives, and how to strategically move forward with tangible impacts. The most recent workshop was held in October 2022 at the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California, where members met after a 3-year hiatus and engaged in dynamic conversations around our priorities and activities.
