Dana Collins

Dana Collins had been involved in the Canadian forestry sector for 15 years — and had been the first woman and youngest person to lead a top-level industry group — when she noticed an opening at Mosaic Forest Management Corp. in Nanaimo. “I had a strong interest in increasing the representation of women and Indigenous cultures in the forestry sector,” she says. “I was often the only woman at the table, so I recognized the challenges facing minorities.” With this focus, Collins was a natural fit for her role at Mosaic. As manager of partnerships, she’s deeply involved in the organization’s culture of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI).
