Women Changing the Face of Agriculture

High School (grades 9 - 12) and college (grades 13 - 16) female students meet with women who currently hold positions in agricultural businesses to learn the adults' educational background, their experiences and recommendations and to develop networks for future communication and encouragement. We are investing in agriculture's future.
