Women in the Agricultural Workplace Webinar, National


Friday, December 11, 2015

9:00 AM – 10:00 AM MST

Agriculture has been stereotypically viewed as predominantly male, but female interest in agriculture has been steadily rising for the past several years. Female enrollment in agricultural 4-year programs has consistently remained above male enrollment since 2010 (Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources Enrollment and Outlook Report by AgCareers.com – 2013 Update). A new study conducted by AgCareers.com reveals further findings to support and examine the fact that more and more women are joining the agricultural workforce today than ever before. Therefore, it’s time to take note to capture the specific skills and talents women bring to the industry.
