This event will include discussion and role playing of difficult situations related to gender bias that have been solicited from individuals in SFR. Pizza dinner included! Open to all in SFR who identify as women, inclusive of people who are non-binary.
Saturday Apr 25 – Forestry Fun: Winter Tree and Shrub ID: University Forest, time TBD. Take a break from your studies and come on a hike in the University Forest for a chance to practice your winter tree and shrub ID! Open to all in SFR who identify as women, inclusive of people who are non-binary.
We have regular meetings, either open to all who identify as women or non-binary or to everyone in the SFR – undergrads, graduate students, researchers, staff, and faculty – to discuss relevant topics, to hear from guest speakers, and to provide a safe place to learn and grow. Our goal is to provide a mix of time to socialize and get to know each other, learn new concepts through seminars, offer brainstorming sessions that allow us to develop strategies, and time in the field to explore what we all love best – forestry!
