Women in Agriculture Infographics by State10/02/2015
From the farm to the classroom to the boardroom, women in agriculture are helping to pave the way for a better future. As leaders, it is our responsibility to make sure the next generation of women are educated, encouraged and empowered to take on the challenges of meeting the worlds growing food, fuel and fiber needs.
To help women across the country connect with other women leaders in agriculture all across the country, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has established a women in ag mentoring network. Join the conversation by emailing AgWomenLead@usda.gov or check out #womeninag on Twitter and on the USDA blog.
ProAg is proud to support the Women in Agribusiness Summit, that was just held this week in Minneapolis, MN. We continue to support the initiative to build a stronger community of women across the agri-food sector with many of our senior and executive leaders joining the Women in Agribusiness membership as well.
To celebrate and honor the contributions of women in agriculture, USDA has released a series of infographics detailing the impact women have on agriculture in each state and across the country. See below for some of the states that ProAg has regional offices located in:
