The Women’s Agricultural Leadership Conference took place Wednesday in Chaska, Minnesota. In its 21st year, the event helps attendees develop leadership skills, create a network and stay informed about issues impacting agriculture. Conference co-founder Doris Mold says all ages and areas of agriculture are encompassed. “We have everyone from a middle school student to a retiree that attends,” says Mold. This year’s theme is “Changing the Agscape,” focused on the ever-evolving environment of agriculture. Mold says the opening general session addressed how diversity can change the future. “We’re not just looking at the diversity of people, but also the diversity in technology, structure, policy and more. Also, farm stress is a huge area we’re focused on because of the changes in agriculture.”
