Topics

Canadian Forest Industries, Canadian Biomass and Pulp & Paper Canada magazines are building upon our Women in Forestry series with the launch of the Women in Forestry Virtual Summit!

Join us on March 9, from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. EST (8:00 – 11:00 a.m. PST) to connect with industry experts and thought leaders who are working to promote equity, diversity and inclusion in Canada’s forest industry.

This must-attend event will feature some of the biggest influencers in the Canadian forest products sector as well as women who have trailblazed in their careers. The Women in Forestry Virtual Summit will feature presentations on a range of topics, including an update on Canada’s Gender Equity in Forestry National Action Plan, an inside look at Canfor’s journey to inclusivity, and a panel discussion focused on solutions to advance women to leadership positions.

In the week leading up to the event, we will be sharing Q&A profiles on 10 women in forestry to share their stories, career advice and management tips here and on womeninforestry.ca.
