Jamie Bechtel

New Course
Co-Founder and CEO
Seattle, WA

Jamie Bechtel is the Co-Founder and CEO of New Course and is a highly regarded leader in international conservation. Before founding New Course, Jamie worked at Conservation International. Through her research and field experience, Jamie realized the importance of including women in conservation and development strategies. This realization led Jamie to step down from her role at CI and reengage in conservation and poverty alleviation through the development of an exciting new not-for-profit organization called New Course.

Jamie is an advisor to the Clinton Global Initiative and was recently honored in Fast Company Magazine as 1 of 60 women heroes. She is represented by the prestigious National Geographic Speakers Bureau and is a lecturer at University of Washington’s School of Law.
