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.
Duties of this role include:
The Artemis program manager will manage the entire Artemis program and continue to build on the foundation already in place. The employee will work to develop the efficacy of Artemis from the financial, advocacy, and visibility standpoints to become a nationwide conservation force in conjunction with NWF affiliates.
