Description

The University Libraries virtually hosted Dr. Monica Granados (she/her), the Climate Change Campaign Manager for Creative Commons, as a speaker on the first day of Open Access Week, October 24th, 2022 at noon Mountain Standard Time. “Open for Climate Justice” was the theme for 2022's International Open Access Week. This theme sought to encourage connection and collaboration between the climate movement and the international open community. Tackling the climate crisis requires the rapid exchange of knowledge across geographic, economic, and disciplinary boundaries. Dr. Granados has a PhD in ecology from McGill University. While working on her PhD, Monica discovered that incentives in academia promote practices that make knowledge less accessible. Since then, Monica has devoted her career to working in the open science space in pursuit of making knowledge more equitable and accessible. As a Senior Policy Advisor at Environment and Climate Change Canada she provided subject matter expertise and supported the delivery of open science in the Government of Canada. Monica is now working at Creative Commons on a global campaign promoting open access of climate and biodiversity research. As a member of the Leadership Team at PREreview she works to make peer review more open and diverse. She is also on the Board of Directors of the Canadian Open Data Society promoting open data in Canada and alumna of the Frictonless Data Fellowship.
