2020 Starker Lecture Series: Women of Forestry

“Women of Forestry: inspiring leadership,” focuses on women who act as agents of change within the forestry and forest products sector as well as within their communities.

The College of Forestry graduated its first woman student, Pauline Barto Sandoz, 75 years ago. Today, the college celebrates the accomplishments of all women who are students, faculty, and alumni in our community as it strives to become a more inclusive space for all. This series will explore the triumphs of women as well as the myriad of challenges they face in forests, mills, research labs and beyond.

The Starker Lectures Series is sponsored by the Starker Family in honor of TJ and Bruce Starker, the Oregon Forest Resources Institute and the Oregon State University College of Forestry.
