Women in the Green Industry

Women in the Green Industry

A new community of Green Industry professionals, Women of the Green Industry, is inviting you to a free, virtual professional development opportunity on November 1st.  Women of the Green Industry was formed to attract and retain more females to the industry by creating networking opportunities, providing education, and build a community of leaders.  This group will be represented by all segments of the Green Industry.

Women of the Green Industry will host monthly meetings to organize and develop the future of the group.  The monthly meetings will include a professional development opportunity to start, followed by an informal meeting.

Carrie Tauscher, Arboretum Director at Crown Hill Heritage Foundation, will discuss opportunities and challenges that a change in career direction entails.  She’ll share insights of the many lessons she’s learned through the transition.  Prior to joining Crown Hill, she was the state Community and Urban Forestry Coordinator for the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.  Carrie has been an active member of the Women in Arboriculture group, under the International Society of Arboriculture.  Her insights will help those considering a change and possibilities/opportunities for the Women in the Green Industry group.

If you would like to be a part of this group or keep up-to-date on future opportunities, please email Kyle Daniel at daniel38@purdue.edu to be added to the email list.
