International Women’s Day 2023

8 March 2023


Our Strategic Plan 2022-2026 aspires to increase the diversity of our membership. Women are still underrepresented in our sector and we need to ensure that people from all genders and backgrounds consider forestry and arboriculture as a career that is open to them.


Our #ILookLikeAForester campaign was created to celebrate all women working in arboriculture and forestry.

Join the conversation this #IWD2023 by tagging us on social media @TheICF in your videos, photos and posts using the #ILookLikeAForester hashtag.

Let us know…

  • What you love about working with trees
  • Why more women should consider it as a career


We are delighted to share another #NurtureGrowThrive case study video with you on International Women’s Day 2023.

We spoke to Associate member, Elva Preston from Wharton Natural Infrastructure Consultants about her career so far.
