Women are playing an increasingly diverse role in U.S. agriculture. I’ve written several stories about their growing prominence.
Now, the Women in Agribusiness Summit promises “to address the challenges and opportunities for women in the agribusiness and food sector.” Organizers also promise “that women representing myriad roles in companies across the agribusiness and food production value chain” will attend.
The event, to be held Sept. 16-17 in New Orleans, will open with remarks by U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., which in itself shows the importance of women, or at least one woman, in U.S. agriculture.
