My Ph.D. research looks at how natural resource conservationists are working to make their field more inclusive and empowering. The main stream of my research investigates how gender biases constrain women’s advancement to conservation leadership positions, and how women and organizations are transforming individual behaviors and institutional structures to increase gender equity. The secondary stream of my PhD focuses on conservation behavior change. For this, I am studying how Colorado residents are adopting new gardening behaviors to make their yards wildlife-friendly, how they are encouraging other residents to adopt similar behaviors, and how conservation organizations are supporting this process.
