Nicole, do you think that Queen Beyoncé is gonna listen to this podcast?
Oh my goodness. That would be the dream, right? Like, that's that's the dream, Kaila.
Well, obviously because then we could have her on season two.
Yes. Oh my goodness, Beyoncé, please!
Beyoncé, please call us.

NWF has a new podcast! On Seeds of Culture Change we'll be discussing the National Wildlife Federation's journey towards equity and justice.
Over the course of this podcast, we're going to have genuine and candid conversations with staff about what this journey has looked like. The good, the bad, the ugly, everything in between. The intent is not to paint a rosy picture of NWF's achievements, but to acknowledge the imperfections of this journey and everything that comes along with it.
Here's a taste of what we'll be diving into this season.
We're going to be providing some historical context about the conservation movement, and the founding culture of the National Wildlife Federation.
You have these folks that were very privileged white men predominantly that we're creating this movement, and for who? For other white, rich men as well.
We'll also talk about some of the steps that NWF is currently taking on our journey towards becoming a more equitable and just organization.
That journey to the place where we are now as an organization has not happened overnight. And it has actually been intentional because of the work of so many who have insisted over and over and over again that the organization truly undertake this journey.
And finally, we'll close out the season with dreaming together about what we hope to see for the future of the National Wildlife Federation.
My vision is that the equity and justice work just becomes so embedded in our DNA and our fabric that it's enduring.
The first episode drops September 21st, and we'll be releasing episodes every Wednesday. You can find us anywhere you listen to podcasts.
