Young women of the QCA can explore careers in agriculture while interacting with industry professionals and hearing first-hand from women in agriculture.
Registration for the 2022 Women Changing the Face of Agriculture is now open. This year’s event will include career panels, opportunities to network with professionals and keynote speaker Amanda Radke from Mitchell, South Dakota. Radke is a fifth-generation rancher who has dedicated her career to serve as a voice for the beef industry and agriculture as a whole. Radke will share her thoughts on mindset development, agriculture advocacy, youth development and dynamics on multi-generational family agribusinesses. Additionally, WCFA will recognize scholarship recipients and other award winners.
