Women's participation in forestry:

Gender equity and recognition of power

I serve as the President of the Board of Directors at the Forest Women's Network (Rede Mulher Florestal).

Empowering, recognizing the power of women globally is one way to decrease population growth and greenhouse gas emissions that drive climate change.


Rede Mulher Florestal promotes gender equity in the forestry sector by, among other ways, bringing forestry professionals and students together to generate and share knowledge and data regarding gender diversity and equity in Brazil's forestry sector.


The future of forestry is diverse and includes women.
