Ph.D. Candidate in Human Dimensions of Natural Resources, Colorado State University

Megan S. Jones is a PhD Candidate in the Human Dimensions of Natural Resources department at Colorado State University. In her research she investigates how women navigate gender biases and motherhood choices to advance to conservation leadership positions, and how women give and receive support in their conservation careers. She also studies how urban residents adopt pro-environmental behaviors, such as creating wildlife habitat and encouraging others to create wildlife habitat, and how conservation organizations support these changes. In addition to her work in the United States, Megan is Co-Director of Mind the Gap Research and Training in the UK, and has worked for two years to support the development of an initiative to support women’s leadership in African conservation.
