On Wednesday, September 28, 2016, at SUNY Adirondack in Queensbury, the Adirondack Research Consortium will host “Women in Leadership,” a forum to present research, best practices, and case studies involving gender based issues and to engage women in leadership roles in government and business in a related panel discussion.
The goal is to identify future research opportunities and specific actions related to gender. Dr. Kristine Duffy, President, SUNY Adirondack is chair of the event which is being held in partnership with SUNY Adirondack and the Center for Women in Government and Civil Society at the University at Albany. The Women in Leadership Series is sponsored by the Walbridge Fund and the International Paper Foundation.
The Adirondack Research Consortium’s next event will be on Wednesday, October 12th. In partnership with the Empire State Forest Products Association, ARC will host a roundtable, “Forest Health and Carbon Storage,” at the Queensbury Hotel in Glens Falls. The purpose of this workshop is to explore research on the issues of forest health and carbon storage in the Adirondacks and how it can shape future management strategies and policies impacting the region. A tour of the Finch mill is included in the program. SAF and NY Logger Training continuing education credits are available for this program.
