Exploring Womanhood Foundation participated in an International Webinar


Towards Gender Equality in the Ranger
Workforce – Challenges & Solutions
‘Women are as eager as men to contribute to conservation through serving
as protected areas Rangers. But the profession is heavily male-dominated,
and women globally represent only about 11% of the Ranger workforce.’

As part of World Ranger Month (July), our second Ranger Roundtable Webinar
will spotlight the first comprehensive and global analysis of the challenges and
opportunities for bringing gender equality into Ranger workforces. Through a
collaboration between the International Ranger Federation and the Universal
Ranger Support Alliance, researcher Dr Joni Seager has opened critical new
perspectives – summary report here.
