Phoebe Stoner has done advocacy a number of different ways: She's worked at non-profits, embedded in the field, and she's also sometimes separated her conservation-life from her professional life. Advocacy doesn't have to be a full-time job for you to make a difference. Stoner is currently on the board of the Northwest Steelheaders, a panel her board colleagues joke errs on the side of male, pale and stale. So... how do you fix that?
