In the second half of our conversation with Jane Park, we spoke about some of the diversity initiatives that Jane has spearheaded within Banff National Park and Parks Canada as a whole. We also spoke about Jane’s experiences of working in fire as a Korean-Canadian woman and type 1 incident commander, and why she thinks it’s imperative to bring more people of color and women into the wildfire and prescribed fire spaces.
