New Zealand Logger - - Breaking Out -

It was my priv­i­lege last month to at­tend the women in forestry con­fer­ence in Napier. It made me aware there is re­ally truth in the say­ing "be­hind ev­ery great man there is a

great woman!" And what a group of very tal­ented ladies who have added to their CV's an in­volve­ment in forestry. In­ter­view­ing them, I re­alised there is an op­por­tu­nity for the in­dus­try to recog­nise the value a fe­male work­force can pro­vide and al­ready how women have em­braced their roles to sup­port their hus­bands, grow their ca­reers and grow their busi­nesses.

It's awe­some and I hope it keeps go­ing - well done all round. ;Drue-
