Women’s Specific Event Examples and Templates

We are better together! A more diverse membership profile that reflects your whole community will enable your chapter or council to do the most complete conservation work.

Once you have discussed your chapter or council’s diversity goals your committee will want to identify the limitations you face to determine your best path forward to remove barriers and foster genuine relationships with your community members.

Below you will find examples of events that are geared toward helping chapters and councils meet their goals.
