Panel: Engaging Diverse and Under–Represented Groups in Urban Forestry
Sarah Anderson, Alliance for Community Trees | Sally Joe Guzik, Tree Pittsburgh | Ashlee Ransom, USDA Forest Service | Becca Meredith and Norah Kates, Forterra
Urban forestry impacts the most diverse places in America, but as tree professionals, are we as diverse as the communities we serve? Whether you are a utility arborist, nonprofit staff member, or government employee, our message to the public about maintaining healthy forests gets through when we reflect the diversity where we live and work. This panel discussion will introduce ways to include underrepresented groups in public, private, and nonprofit sectors of urban forestry.
