SFI, with help from forest sector volunteers, joined the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) 2023 National Jamboree in Summit Bechtel Reserve (an SFI-certified property) near Beckley, West Virginia, from July 19th to the 28th.
For International Women’s Day 2022, SFI, Project Learning Tree (PLT), and PLT Canada, want to help #BreakTheBias. The women who are part of our staff, network of partners, SFI Board and Educational Operating Committee, SFI-certified organizations, and many other facets of our work show the value of SFI’s commitment to gender equality and a diverse and resilient workforce. Building a diverse and resilient workforce is one of the ways SFI celebrates the principles behind International Women’s Day every day.
Celebrate this Black History Month and the months to follow by deepening your learning and elevating the many important contributions of historic and current Black Americans working in forestry and natural resources conservation.
Happy New Year! I hope you and your loved ones had a peaceful holiday break. I am excited to start 2022 building on the positive change the SFI community makes every day in addressing local, national and global sustainability challenges.
