WTREX provide many of the same hands-on opportunities and experiences as other TREX events, but also explore the challenges, from attitudes to equipment, of working in a male-dominated field. Participants of all genders are invited to apply, and about 10% of participants each year are men. 

WTREX has a strong focus on women in fire, but the team also recognizes the importance of diversity more generally. Just as biodiversity lends itself to ecological resilience, human diversity will contribute to the resilience and success of the fire management system. The WTREX team recognizes a need for diverse perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences, and the team believes in providing a training environment where everyone—all genders, backgrounds and experience levels—is honored and valued.
