Schine speaks to Northern Woodlands about working as a woman in forestry
Elisa Schine, a graduate student in forestry at the University of Maine, spoke to Northern Woodlands about working in forestry professions as a woman. Although forestry has become much more inclusive of women during the past several decades, it remains a majority male profession. “There’s this incredible resource of potential employees, potential collaborators who are just not being invited in. And I think, in male-dominated fields, you have to actually invite people in, otherwise they won’t see a place for themselves. That doesn’t seem like a good trajectory to be on,” Schine said. The Maine Monitor shared the Northern Woodlands report.
