This session, presented by Jessika Mitchell, aims to look at questions about worker recruitment and retention through a new lens by exploring the importance of looking beyond traditional hiring pools and building more gender-inclusive work environments. Research demonstrates that utilizing the unique qualities women contribute to workplace culture can ultimately strengthen our teams and increase profit margins. However, we must acknowledge that work within the tree care industry presents a unique set of challenges for women and their employers. This talk will address these challenges, explore potential solutions, and provide communication tools that can be used by all members of our community to help make our industry a more inclusive and equitable environment. Watch the ISA 2020 Virtual Conference Rewind Series videocast, and then take this accompanying CEU quiz to check your knowledge. This quiz is worth 0.5 credits.
