'The Journeys of Black Professionals in Green Careers' featuring Alex Singleton
International Paper’s Alex Singleton, Fiber Supply Manager at our Rome, Ga. Containerboard Mill, is featured alongside 21 other Black professionals from the forest and conservation sector, in Project Learning Tree’s new guide Black Faces in Green Spaces: The Journeys of Black Professionals in Green Careers.
In August of 2021, minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences (MANRRS) and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) made a commitment to ensure that Black Americans have greater opportunities for rewarding careers in the forest and conservation sector.
By releasing Black Faces in Green Spaces: The Journeys of Black Professionals in Green Careers, Project Learning Tree is hoping to promote diversity and the many career opportunities in the forest and conservation sector to young Black Americans.
In the book, Singleton shares how his love for the outdoors began at a young age, his family’s involvement in the forest products industry, and his own advice for future generations.
A digital copy of the guide is available for free here, and you can find Alex Singleton’s feature on page 24.
