International Women's Day 2022 - Women in the Woods!
8 Mar 2022
International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
At Small Woods, we are proud to employ women in a wide range of roles throughout the organisation. Here's Anna, an engagement officer who works for Coed Lleol (Small Woods Wales) at Craig Gwladus in Neath, to tell you what it's like to be a woman in the woods in 2022.
