About Richard Salas - Wilderness Spirit Honoree

Courtesy Richard Salas

Courtesy Richard Salas

Richard Salas is a California native and graduate from Brooks Institute of Photography, where he was mentored by Ernest Brooks II and first introduced to diving and underwater photography. Richard has worked professionally in digital media for over twenty-four years and his distinct approach to bringing out the texture and depth of his underwater subjects is informed by years of experience in lighting products and people. He has authored three books of photography, including Sea of Light: Underwater Photography of California’s Channel Islands, Blue Visions: Underwater Photography from the Mexican Border to the Equator, and Luminous Sea: Underwater Photography from Washington to Alaska.

Salas’ mission is to take viewers through a marine biosphere where humanity’s impact is an undeniable force. While many new endemic species are discovered every year, others have disappeared from it completely. Salas’ striking images illuminate the unique vitality of every organism he encounters. Salas teaches underwater photography in Alaska, Canada, California, and Mexico and is a strong advocate for the sea and its inhabitants.

Focus on Workplace Compliance: Insights from EEOC Commissioner Keith Sonderling

Organizations have made huge strides toward equality in the workplace, but there's still a lot of work to be done. It's crucial to understand that discrimination in the workplace is more than a compensation issue; it can reflect an imbalance that runs throughout the organization, from the recruiting and hiring process to onboarding to mentoring, project opportunities and promotions. To advance equity efforts, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) establishes strategic priorities and enforces federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person's race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. 

Join us for an informal, off-the-record discussion with EEOC Commissioner Keith Sonderling where we will discuss current priorities and evolving issues with the EEOC, and what employers can expect in the coming years, such as:

  • What can employers expect from EEOC leadership with the 3-2 Republican majority?
  • What are the EEOC’s latest enforcement & litigation statistics?
  • What is the latest COVID-19-related guidance?
  • What is the EEOC’s view on the use of artificial intelligence in the workplace? 
  • What new compliance assistance is available to employers?
  • How has EEOC expressed support for the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) Program?
  • How is the EEOC hoping that employers will use “EEO Explore” – a new Data Tool to Track Employment Trends, to improve awareness and compliance?
  • How is the EEOC emphasizing protections for Veterans?
  • What is the outlook for a renewed EEO-1 Component 2 pay data report?

ADP remains at the forefront of helping employers understand the complex compliance, financial, and strategic issues surrounding workforce management. Tap into our expertise to ensure you’re in the best shape possible for future workplace compliance changes that may come about along the way.

The two artists will be bringing their talents to the museum for live painting demonstrations, providing visitors with a behind-the-scenes look at how artists bring outdoor inspiration to the canvas.

The goal of the exhibition, in partnership with Healthy People Healthy Trails and the Santa Barbara County Trails Council, is to raise awareness of the wealth of trails located in Santa Barbara County and to inspire visitors and community members to explore them, while encouraging a healthier lifestyle.

Trails highlighted in the show range from the South Coast, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Maria Valley, and Lompoc Valley regions including trails located at Carpinteria Bluffs, Goleta’s Lake Los Carneros and Ellwood Mesa, to La Purisima State Historic Park, Lake Cachuma, and many more.

Kevin Gleason, Fall Colors – Ellwood Bluffs, Oil on linen on panel, Courtesy the Artist.

My art combines two of my greatest loves: exploring beautiful wild places on foot and drawing with a paintbrush. When I am out scouting places to set up my easel, I am searching for a combination of two things – an intriguing natural subject that speaks to me on a literal level mixed with a sense of light and atmosphere that tugs at me emotionally. 

I was lucky to grow up in South Lake Tahoe with miles of wilderness, mountains, lakes, and creeks literally in my backyard. I then came to Santa Barbara for college and again experienced living in a beautiful setting, this time with oak woodlands and the Pacific Ocean. Besides being a landscape painter, I teach art at Dos Pueblos High School in Goleta.
