The Heather M. Morgan Climate Risk Adaptation Lecture honors the memory of Heather Morgan, noted climate risk adaptation expert, and her contributions to the field of sustainability. Heather dedicated her career to redefining the relationship between our human inhabitation and the natural system utilizing a transdisciplinary approach. She used her formidable oratory skills to educate people and empower them to advocate for their communities because she felt that unless people understood the dynamic, there would be no real progress. Heather was herself a force of nature who brought boundless energy, genuine integrity, and limitless passion to her work.

Each year the Morgan Lecture series highlights outstanding women in climate and climate resilience leadership. Now in its second year, the Heather Morgan Lecture features a personal conversation between two extraordinary women in the field—one a veteran trailblazer and the other an up-and-coming climate design expert. The accomplishments and dialogue between Terry Doss and Sarah Dougherty will showcase the values, skills, and insights of Heather Morgan.
