Welcome to the Out in the Field (OITF) Initiative

The OITF Initiative was started in 2019 to make LGBTQ+ TWS members more visible so that we can support and mentor each other, and work with our allies to foster a more inclusive, welcoming culture where diversity of all kinds is clearly embraced. OITF has three simple goals: (1) to increase visibility of LGBTQ+ wildlifers in TWS, (2) to build a community of LGBTQ+ wildlifers, and (3) to identify ways to support LGBTQ+ wildlifers, including students, in the wildlife profession. OITF is housed within the Ethnic and Gender Diversity Working Group.
