Apply Today for the Leadership Institute

The Wildlife Society

The Wildlife Society is currently accepting applications for its Leadership Institute. 

The Institute facilitates development of new leaders within TWS and the wildlife profession. We’ll recruit 10-15 promising early-career professionals for a series of intensive activities and mentoring relationships. The focus will be on exposing participants to the inner workings of TWS and increasing the number of active leaders in TWS and the wildlife profession.
Are you or do you know an early-career professional,
two to three years out of either undergraduate or graduate school,
currently working full-time in a wildlife professional position,
and with demonstrated evidence of leadership potential?
Apply today or forward this email to a person who’d make a great fit.

A small number of slots may also be available for more recent graduates who have shown strong evidence of their leadership potential or for those who are working while concurrently pursuing a graduate degree.
From May to October, participants will engage in a series of activities to develop and expand their leadership skills. Institute members will also attend the TWS Annual Conference in Milwaukee (October 4-9, 2013) and participate in various activities, including mentoring and leadership workshop sessions. The Institute is free, and participants will receive free registration and a travel grant for the conference. 
All applicants must be members of TWS and a Chapter or Section of TWS. The selection committee will be seeking to create a diverse group, with participants of varying gender, ethnic, and regional diversity.
