Influential Women in Canadian Agriculture 2022

Sponsor

Influential Women in Canadian Agriculture and Annex Business Media

Description

The program was created in 2020 in an effort to recognize the crucial and evolving role of women in agriculture, from farming to research, to community outreach, technology and more.

This year, the team will highlight six women from across various disciplines in agriculture and share their stories, achievements, challenges and wisdom through the brands: Top Crop Manager, Potatoes in Canada, Canadian Poultry, Manure Manager and Fruit & Vegetable.

The entire program will culminate in the fall of 2022 with the IWCA Summit, a half-day, virtual event where the Influential Women in Canadian Agriculture will share advice and experience to their fellow women in agriculture. Nominees can also have any focus – whether it’s on manure, soil, air quality, livestock or any other aspect of agriculture.

Program details and timeline are not yet confirmed. This information will be updated when the program launches.
