Today is International Women’s Day, and FRA would like to take the opportunity to share the recording of our recent webinar Women in Forestry. FRA President Deb Hawkinson was joined by a great panel of women leaders of the forest products industry to discuss their experiences. The panelists discussed the skillsets that helped them succeed as leaders in the industry, their mentors along the way, examples and recommendations on how forestry organizations can support women in their ranks, and the mentoring and support they provide to other women in the industry. Panelists included:
