Women's Initiative Welcome and Orientation Documents

Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Trout Unlimited Women's Initiative. A major priority for the organization is to diversify our membership, our leadership and to generally create a more welcoming and inclusive community which includes our chapters and councils. It is quite clear that a more diverse membership profile will better enable the organization to more effectively represent the angling community and to do the best possible, most complete conservation work. When we don’t have all the stakeholders at the table, our solutions are incomplete.
Below, you will find some documents that we hope will help to orient new volunteer leaders and give you a better understanding of what we're trying to do. If you have any questions or if you would like to be put in touch with your local TU chapter, please contact the TU Volunteer Operations staff.
This guide is a one-stop-shop for everything a new TU volunteer leader, at any level of the organization, might want to know about the operations of TU and best practices for most volunteer positions.
