Women in Forest Stewardship

The Forest Stewards Guild values diversity in our practice, knowledge base, strategies, and perspectives. During Women's History Month 2019, we have paused to intentionally express our gratitude and highlight the richness we gain through the efforts and wisdom of women in forest stewardship. We highlight some of these women here, each work day in March, and also dedicate the spring issue of The Forest Steward magazine to women in forest stewardship. If you are a current member, expect that in your mailbox in the second half of March. Thank you to all who contributed to this reflection and to all who contribute and support diversity in our ranks every day.

I work with many remarkable women who started in the field of forest science at a time when their presence was seen as a threat by some.
