About the network

The Women in Forests and Timber Network (WFTN) is a forum for women in our industry to meet, exchange ideas and ensure our voices are heard.

We aim to recognise the contributions of the women in our industry, to celebrate their achievements and to support their access to skills and professional development opportunities.
