Women often go unrepresented at a leadership level when it comes to the management of our natural resources, despite enjoying the outdoors as hunters, anglers and trappers. In fact, in most rooms where conservation decisions are being made, you’ll find women are the minority.
The Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation is excited to announce the FIRST-EVER National Advancing Women in Conservation (AWIC) Summit, taking place November 4-6, 2022 in Saskatoon, SK.
AWIC is a chance for women from all fields conservation (NGO, government, academia, industry, etc) from all over Canada to come together to address challenges, discuss solutions, enhance leadership skills, and develop a strong, nurturing community for women working in a field where the roles of women have been traditionally downplayed.
This fall, naturalists, outdoor enthusiasts, and conservationists from all over Canada will come together to address challenges, discuss solutions, and develop a unified community working toward the inclusion of women in outdoor leadership.
This weekend summit will focus on highlighting women’s unique challenges and contributions to conservation, action planning, and skill building while networking with women working and volunteering in the conservation and environmental sectors.
