Do not miss the 2022 Women’s Forest Congress Inaugural Event. We will gather in Minneapolis, Minnesota, October 17-20, 2022, to use our diverse perspectives and collective expertise to develop strategies and solutions to address the most pressing current and forthcoming challenges for forests and women. And we will advocate for the most compelling opportunities for women in the forest community as they arise. The event is expected to attract up to 1,000 individuals, in-person and virtually, across the forest community: those who live in, manage, steward, work in, work for, care for, play in, and love all types of forests.
The inaugural in-person Women’s Forest Congress is open to all who are aligned in creating safe spaces to connect, inspire, and act as catalysts for change for the benefit of forests and all who rely on them now and in the future. All who are committed to creating community and cultivating change are welcome: trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming participants are welcome, as are women and allies of all ages, perspectives, cultural backgrounds, professional levels, abilities, and education.
Critical topics we are addressing include:
- Leadership for Equity & Inclusion
- Workforce Opportunities for Increasing Recruitment, Retention, and Advancement
- Women as Catalysts for Change
- Addressing Today’s Greatest Forest Challenges
- Supporting Each Other
