The CFI Podcast: Tanya Wick on women in forestry

February 25, 2020  By CFI Staff

Welcome to the second episode of The CFI Podcast!

Tanya Wick is the vice-president of people and services for Tolko Industries.

To celebrate International Women’s Day coming up on March 8, we spoke with Tanya Wick, Tolko Industries’ vice-president of people and services, about all things women in forestry: the importance of gender diversity hiring practices, industry initiatives to address gender diversity, advice for women looking to get into the industry, and more.

“It’s apparent that diversity and inclusion is no longer a ‘nice-to-have.’ It’s not a box to tick. It requires commitment and it can’t be accomplished in a single conversation,” Tanya told us in our conversation. “We need to be addressing it at all levels – the individual, the company and the industry.”

In this episode, you will find out more about best practices when it comes to gender diversity and inclusion, how your company can further encourage and support women in the industry, and Tanya’s thoughts about the future of the industry.
