The National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) announced the creation of Women in Landscape Network, a new community within the landscape and lawncare industry, created for female professionals and those committed to support issues impacting women in the field.

The goal of Women in Landscape Network is to connect, empower and advocate for women in the landscape industry; recruit and retain female professionals and amplify the voices of women leaders.

The NALP Women in Landscape Network advisory board includes:

  • Brigitte Orrick, director of recruiting & employee development, The Davey Tree Expert Company
  • Caitlin Clineff, recruiting specialist & company ambassador, Myatt Landscaping
  • Jaclyn Ishimaru-Gachina, president, Gachina Landscape Management
  • Jen Lemcke, chief operating officer, Turf Holdings, Inc. / TH Canada Inc. / Weed Man
  • Lisa Fiore, founder & CEO, LandscapeHub

“We are excited about the formation of this new group that was born under the auspices of NALP’s Industry Growth Initiative (IGI),” says Jenn Myers, director of workforce development for NALP. “IGI was initially focused on recruiting people to the industry but has expanded its scope to solve issues associated with retaining key contributors. As an association, we are proud to be standing alongside other traditionally male-dominated industries and hosting important dialogues to address the challenges faced by women in the industry head-on.”

Network advisory board members and leaders of this initiative will host a press conference announcing the initiative on Wednesday, Oct. 16 at 11:45 a.m. in the Cherokee Triangle Room of the Louisville Omni Hotel.

During sessions on Oct. 15-16, at Landscapes, the dialogue will continue with a networking event designed to connect female professionals and a business meeting to address actionable work plans for the newly formed community.
