Each spring, a coalition of Minnesota women and organizations host the Women’s Ag Leadership Conference. The 25th annual conference will be held April 12 at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in Chaska.
The conference is open to anyone with an interest in women’s agricultural leadership, including those in production, industry, and education. Since its inception, more than 3,700 women have attended.
“We are bringing together some amazing speakers to really drive home the fact that a sterling future can only be achieved if we continue to build leaders in agriculture that have the skills, talents, and resilience to carry them forward in our ever changing world,” says event co-founder Doris Mold. “From ways to prevent burnout, to expanding your reach through podcasts, to building networks, we’re helping attendees set themselves up for long-term success.”
The day will feature roundtable discussions, breakout sessions, and mini sessions. Topics include the 2023 Farm Bill, nutrition, and the ag and fertilizer market.
Registration fees begin at $30 for students and $50 for first-time attendees or farmers. Visit WomensAgLeadership.org for more on the conference and to register online.
