2023 Call for Leadership Conference Sponsorship

The 7th Annual ISU Extension and Outreach Women in Ag Leadership Conference brings together women in agribusiness, farming, and ag organizations, as well as students. Our overall conference goal is to support women as they replenish their spirit, discover their dreams, and deepen their aspirations to lead within their family, farm, agribusiness, and agricultural community.

To accomplish this goal, we designed a conference experience that will:

  • Increase women’s belief in themselves and the power of life-long learning.
  • Create connections with other women that inspire their leadership journey.
  • Encourage women to develop practical skills they can apply to their lives.

The leadership conference is our opportunity to bring together audiences of women in agriculture from across the state and from across different agricultural sectors. Our yearly conference is our pride and joy!

What is the Leadership Conference?

  • Two-day conference centered on women in agriculture.
  • Educational tours and highly anticipated speakers.
  • Skill building workshops and breakout sessions.
  • Networking with women leaders in the agricultural industry.
  • Women Impacting Agriculture awards.

What is the Women in Ag Program?
