This a quick reminder that the deadline for session proposals has been extended to October 31 (technically 2022-10-31 23:59 GMT+2).
I know that there are several proposals from Division 7 that are under development, and there is still time to develop a session if you wish. All are welcome to develop sessions that match the congress themes as listed on the website. When suggesting speakers, please remember to incorporate diversity in age, gender and geographic location.
All the best, Tod

On behalf of Jess Hartshorn.
All, please consider completing the survey as the results will inform future discussions on how to improve diversity within IUFRO.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the session on Gender Issues in Forest Entomology and Pathology at the Division 7 meeting in Lisbon! Based on the discussion at the end of the session, I would like to invite you all to take a brief (< 5 min) survey about activities that IUFRO could create or participate in that would serve to promote gender equity and inclusion within the organization. All survey responses are anonymous.
At the bottom of the survey is a link to enter your information into a publicly-available directory which can be used to connect researchers, students, and others interested in continuing the conversation of diversity, equity, and inclusion in forestry research. The directory will be available here (I’m currently the only person listed 😊): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1hy1CgtKljbP5MBhcEjtTr1Ji-aUPe4iCMI8…<https://can01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fdocs.goog…>
If you have any questions about the survey or directory, please do not hesitate to contact me at jhartsh(a)clemson.edu<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>.
