Women’s Forest Congress

In: Community >

The Women’s Forest Congress is a forum to develop strategies and solutions for forests through a female lens. Women throughout the forest space have come together to share personal and professional experiences, connect with other women in the sector, shape the latest innovations, and consider how actions informed by the female perspective can make a profound impact on the future of forests.
The Inaugural Women’s Forest Congress will take place October 17-20, 2022 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Until then, there are many opportunities to engage today, including topical working groups and virtual conversations. The Steering Committee wants your perspective, ideas, and guidance to ensure the Congress is a success.

The Women’s Forest Congress is a new, dynamic and inclusive forum to develop strategies, solutions and radical change for forests. We are women throughout the forest community who are sharing personal and professional experiences, connecting with each other, shaping the latest innovations and considering how actions informed by our perspectives can make a profound impact on the future of forests.

We envision a forest community where there is universal equity, inclusion, and a shared sense of belonging. All voices are heard, supported, and empowered. The influence and impact of all are manifest in our relationships with forests.

Our mission is to create community and cultivate change. Together we create safe spaces to connect, inspire, and act as catalysts for change for the benefit of forests and all who rely on them now and for the future.
