Webinar series: Cultivating Resiliency for Women in Agriculture

A new interactive online series is setting out to help women in agriculture cultivate resiliency by focusing on what they can control in these challenging times and help connect to them with resources and information that can help them weather stress. Raising awareness of farm stress is important, but offering some tools to help weather the stress is critical. This project has brought together American Agri-Women, District 11 Agri-Women, University of Minnesota Extension- Women in Ag Network and the Upper Midwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center (UMASH) to work on this effort. Funding is provided by a UMASH grant.

These interactive sessions are up to 90 minutes in length. Each will include a topic for discussion (approximately 40-45 minutes) and an interactive Q & A period for the remaining time. Sessions are free and you may sign up by going to www.americanagriwomen.org/webinars. All sessions will be recorded and posted on the American Agri-Women website.

The Cultivating Resiliency for Women in Agriculture online series will be held at 12 noon Central Time on the following dates:

Jan. 11
