Networking

Find supportive, professional networks for women in agriculture.

With significantly fewer women than men in agriculture, it can be hard for women to find others who share their experiences and can offer support and guidance. The rural location of many agricultural businesses can add to the sense of isolation.

While connecting face to face may not be possible, women can find communities online full of people who share their challenges and can provide valuable input and relevant perspectives.
