March 7, 2023 at 11:00am EST

Women represented just 17 per cent of the forestry labour force in 2016 – but representation is gradually increasing as key industry players lead the change on gender equity. Inspired by their ongoing efforts to dismantle the barriers that prevent or discourage women and under-represented people from entering and advancing in the industry, Canadian Forest IndustriesPulp & Paper CanadaCanadian Biomass and Opérations Forestières et de Scierie are once again hosting a digital day of discussion around gender and diversity in the forest sector.

Join us March 7, 2023, as we expect to welcome back hundreds of forestry changemakers who are looking for inspiration and advice on fostering inclusion in our industry and reaping all the innovation that comes from it.

Featuring 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 offers a live panel discussion, presentations and on-demand sessions where speakers will explore the importance of fostering a diverse and inclusive workforce, share career advice and real-life experiences, recommend actions companies can take to recruit female employees and advance them to leadership positions, and much more.

This year’s summit with be truly national, with speakers from across Canada and French-English simultaneous interpretation available for all presentations.
