INVITATION TO THE LAUNCH OF THE ASSOCIATION FOR WOMEN IN FORESTRY AFRICA
The association for Women in Forestry Africa (WiFA) hereby invites your company representative and your team of professional women in the forestry sector to participate at its launch. WiFA was established in August 2018 with the intention to advocate and support the role of women practitioners within the forestry sector in the African continent.
Forestry, by nature is a challenging industry. It is one of the professions which are still considered to have gender inequalities. WiFA believes that women play an important and primary role in the forestry sector as entrepreneurs, employees, managers, etc.
WiFA strives to bring together women forestry practitioners in the African continent to engage in their professional growth and expand their skills and capabilities. This is to ensure that they are contributors and change makers to the future of the forestry sector. This initiative amongst others aims to:
• Create a platform to advance women forestry practitioners’ participation in the transformation agenda within the forestry sector.
• Provide an array of women forestry practitioners to connect, learn and grow within the sector through a well-structured coaching and mentorship program.
