National Wildlife Federation
  • Rocky Mountain Regional Center
  • Denver, CO, USA
  • Full Time

Founded in 1936, the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) has grown into America's largest and most trusted grassroots conservation organization with 51 state/territorial affiliates and more than six million members and supporters, including hunters, anglers, gardeners, birders, hikers, campers, paddlers, etc. The mission of the National Wildlife Federation is to unite all Americans to ensure wildlife thrive in our rapidly changing world. The organization's programs focus on conserving wildlife, restoring habitat and waterways, expanding outdoor opportunities, connecting children with nature, and addressing the causes and consequences of climate change.

NWF's new sportswomen's initiative, Artemis, is key to the conservation movement's future and will play a defining role in NWF's public lands and sporting conservation portfolios.

Women now comprise a quarter of all anglers, more than 20% of all hunters, and are the fastest growing segment in the sporting community in the United States. Women have economic power, authentic field experience, and fresh perspectives necessary to increase the richness and diversity of the conservation movement. Despite comprising a significant portion of the sporting community, very few women are leading conservation campaigns, as they are not proportionately represented in wildlife conservation leadership roles.

The Artemis program manager will work with NWF sporting and public lands staff to change this dynamic, build a sportswomen's movement, and secure protection and enhancement of America's public lands, waters and wildlife. The employee will build strategic campaigns, expand our sporting capacity, and maximize resources.
