Women in Forestry
March 9, 2021 at
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 from entering the industry, and to facilitate conversations about advancing women into leadership positions, Canadian Forest Industries, Pulp & Paper Canada and Canadian Biomass launched a microsite dedicated to Women in Forestry, www.womeninforestry.ca.
Building on this initiative, we invite you to join us for the Women in Forestry Virtual Summit on March 9, 2021!
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.
Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with industry experts and thought leaders whose shared goal is to promote equity, diversity and inclusion in the Canadian forestry space.
We are currently finalizing speakers for this event, which is still subject to change. If you have a proposal for a speaker, email Ellen Cools at firstname.lastname@example.org or Kristina Urquhart at email@example.com.
