Change. It’s what’s on the table

We hear a lot about diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) these days. What do these terms mean to you and what changes are needed for the wildlife profession to become more inclusive? We’ll start with the type of change that will help our DEI efforts and profession grow, then provide some uplifting examples of successful allyship for underrepresented groups in wildlife. You’ll hear from 3 of the 42 authors of the upcoming book “Women of Wildlife Science: Building Equity, Diversity and Inclusion,” ( This book provides practical advice on how to be an ally and support women, LGBTQ+, People of Color, Indigenous, and other marginalized communities. We want to highlight a path forward to increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion. The 3 authors are Diana Doan-Crider, Mamie Parker, and Katie O’Donnell.
