Knowledge, Beauty, and Insight: Why the Sciences, Arts and Letters Matter to Wisconsin




Join us on Tuesday, March 10 when we welcome Jane Elder from Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters who will present Knowledge, Beauty and Insight: Why the Sciences, Arts and Letters Matter to Wisconsin.  Please plan to meet at Blackhawk Country Club at 11:30 for networking; we will be seated promptly at 11:55 for lunch.  Your entree choices are Grilled Chicken Breast with Lemon Caper Beurre Blanc or Grilled Portabella Mushroom with Lemon Caper Beurre Blanc, both served over Quinoa and topped with Balsamic Arugula Greens and a fresh fruit garnish.  Please register by Thursday, March 5. March 2015 Luncheon Registration

Jane Elder, Executive Director of the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts & Letters will talk about how public participation in the sciences, arts, and letters is essential to a better quality of life in Wisconsin. Some themes she'll touch upon are why science and higher education are often devalued, what it means for Wisconsin to be ranked 48th in public funding for the arts, and how poetry, writing, and the performing arts can flourish in Wisconsin communities both large and small (creative placemaking). She will also discuss the Academy's unique and important role in building Wisconsin's capacity to face these challenges and foster our creative opportunities.

Jane is executive director of the Wisconsin Academy. She brings to the Wisconsin Academy a strong background in public policy leadership, nonprofit management, and involvement in Wisconsin arts. Her career has focused on environmental policy and communications, while personal interests include theater, modern dance and painting. Jane was the founding director of the Sierra Club’s Great Lakes program, and led the organization’s Midwest Office for many years, spearheading advances in water quality, air quality, and public lands protection in the region. She was the first recipient of Sierra Club’s Michael McCloskey Award, which honors “a distinguished record of achievement in national or international conservation causes.”

Jane was also the founding director of the Biodiversity Project, a nationwide initiative to raise public awareness about the value of Earth’s diverse species, habitats, and ecosystems, and to promote responsive action to stem the tide of loss. This work included a project to explore the ethical and theological reasons for protecting biodiversity, and a groundbreaking communications handbook: Ethics for a Small Planet. In 2002 she received the Bay and Paul Foundations’ Biodiversity Leadership Award which recognizes and rewards efforts to protect biodiversity by researchers, scholars, and advocates.
