Women in Agriculture Conference

November 18, 2017

Mark your calendar and join us for inspiration, knowledge and networking on Saturday, November 18, 2017 for the 6th Annual Women in Agriculture Conference.

“WE CAN DO IT” is the theme for the sixth annual Women in Agriculture Conference and will be an engaging, interactive day full of inspiration, learning and networking with other women farmers. The 2017 conference is a one-day event held simultaneously in 39 locations throughout Washington, Alaska, Idaho, Montana and Oregon.

Featured Speakers
Both of our 2017 speakers, Alexis Taylor, Oregon Department of Ag Director, and Anne Schwartz, Blue Heron Farm owner, will inspire participants to strengthen their leadership skills, become leaders in their communities, become more involved with long-time farmers and guide and mentor new farmers.

Each event location will have a panel of local women farmers who will talk about their leadership roles, the challenges they have faced and how they have used a mentor to develop their skills.

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and interact. It will be a full day of learning and networking!

Mark your calendar and join other women to learn, network and be ready to take action!
