Sarah Sewell is a fiercely passionate servant leader who builds programs that put a profit motive behind environmental stewardship and social equity. In 2018, Sewell launched the Tree Equity: Career Pathways Initiative at American Forests to inclusively grow the urban forestry field, which has resulted in the training of hundreds and placement of dozens of individuals facing barriers to employment into entry-level urban forestry jobs. Through partnering with employers and trade groups and optimizing job training programs, Sewell and the Career Pathways team create local workforce strategies that address urban forestry’s workforce shortage.
