Are self-sabotage and imposter syndrome more common in women, and how can female conservationists gain more support in their careers? 

Today’s episode is something a little bit different  

It’s a recording of a recent webinar by Conservation Careers where we explored the barriers and opportunities for the women, who have dedicated their careers to conserving ‘mother Earth’. 

We’re joined by Kirsty Crawford and Laura Cuppage of & another thing, which is an open and honest platform for discussing conservation issues like these 

The webinar is hosted by our own Kristi Foster, who leads us through really fascinating discussion looking at issues of inequalities and opportunities for women in the conservation movement 

It’s in aspiring and thought-provoking chat … so let’s dive in.
