Working closely with the Senior Program Director and volunteer co-chairs, the Program Associate will help shape and implement learning opportunities on a range of conservation issues in virtual and in-person formats. Surfacing emerging issues and topics and identifying areas for deeper peer engagement is a valuable component of this work, affording the Program Associate opportunities to strengthen their own leadership skills and develop subject expertise.
