This interactive webinar will explore the challenges faced by early career forest professionals and how they managed and overcame them.
Featuring some of the biggest influencers in the Canadian forest products sector as well as women who have trailblazed in their careers, the Women in Forestry Virtual Summit offers a live panel discussion, presentations and on-demand sessions where speakers will explore the importance of fostering a diverse and inclusive workforce, share career advice and real-life experiences, recommend actions companies can take to recruit new talent and advance them to leadership positions, and much more.
This meeting includes continued forestry education for members and non-members of the Nova Scotia Forest Technicians Association and the Registered Professional Foresters Association of NS. The meeting also includes business meetings, networking, a Forestry Hall of Fame banquet, and opportunities to catch up with colleagues.
It is anticipated, this two-day conference will bring together 150+ attendees from across the Maritimes. The conference will provide information and inspiration to Lean practitioners—from those just starting out, to seasoned Lean leaders from the manufacturing, healthcare, service, and other vital industry sectors.
The Accessible Canada Act created a framework to realize the goal of a barrier-free Canada by 2040. That may seem like a long way away, but there’s plenty of work to do to get there, so let’s start today! During this webinar, we will discuss how to create spaces and business practices that are accessible.
As you may know, for the past year a team of sector representatives have worked to explore trade designation for Forestry Equipment Operator – Harvester and Forwarder in Nova Scotia. The designation of a trade is voluntary and only works with support from industry employers and operators themselves. It is key at this stage to share information on what trade designation means, and the many opportunities it brings to the profession. This is the first session of several engagements that will take place across the province to get broad industry input and share the next steps in the process. To provide your input, especially if you are a Harvester or Forwarder operator or contractor, you’re invited to come and learn more—and share your thoughts. Please join us on June 13th at 7 pm at the Inn on Prince in Truro, NS. Optional dinner and networking before the session at 5:30 pm (dinner cost $48+HST).
