Call for speakers at the 2024 Women in Forestry Virtual Summit

November 6, 2023  By CFI Staff

The Women in Forestry Virtual Summit is welcoming speaker proposals to present at the fourth annual digital day of discussion around gender and diversity in the forest sector.

On March 8, 2024 – International Women’s Day – 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.

We are looking for speakers to cover the following audience-requested themes, and welcome suggestions as well.

  • Indigenous inclusion and leadership in forestry
  • Mentorship how-tos and success stories
  • Overcoming bias in the workplace
  • Effective (and ineffective) workplace or government DEI policies
  • International Women’s Day 2024 theme of #InspireInclusion

If you are interested in speaking at our event, or have a speaker to recommend, please send a short proposal to Maria Church: mchurch@annexbusinessmedia.com.
