Congratulations, Maureen Reed

Maureen Reed, Professor and Assistant Director, School of Environment and Sustainability, has been honoured with the YWCA Women of Distinction Award. Altogether, 55 women were chosen for this award from Saskatoon and surrounding area. Susan Carr, general manager of the Prince Albert Model Forest, describes Maureen Reed, “She just has a grace in the way she is able to encourage students and give them very good direction. She is a person people want to work with, and is a magnet for very good people that want to work for the better good.”
Reed is known on the international stage, for her research work with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization(UNESCO) biosphere reserves, their governance and sustainability. Currently, UNESCO has about 300 biosphere reserves across Europe and North America as part of the Man and Biosphere Reserve Programme.
