Women in Arboriculture Breakfast

The WCISA WIA breakfast presented by the Women In Arboriculture Committee is an all-inclusive event that focus on topics and speakers related to women in arboriculture. It is a great networking event and participation helps to identify, learn, and resolve challenges women face in our industry.

Breaking Barriers
This year’s breakfast focuses on identifying challenges that women face as employees, as well as those that employers face when it comes to hiring women. The WIA committee is committed to starting a supportive dialogue, exploring solutions and developing resources that can be used by all members of our community to help make the tree care industry a more inclusive and equitable environment. To this end, we invite everyone’s participation and input as we strive to break down barriers and bring the tree care industry into a more inclusive and equitable future.

The breakfast will be led by Jessika Mitchell and Julia Gowin (CalFire) and facilitated by members of the WIA committee.

In addition to the breakfast, WIA will have a separate session for women only to reflect and exchange on what we have shared and learned during the breakfast. This session will be during the morning break following the breakfast.

This is a ticketed event.
