The Advancing Women in Agriculture Conference is taking place in Calgary in late March. It's been an annual event for several years now.
"It is all about bringing women together across the country, and across the industry," explained Coordinator Iris Meck. "Students, producers, representatives from grower association and corporate agri-business. It is a great opportunity for them to get out of their day-to-day and ave a chance to refocus and re-energize."
The two-day conference will have workshops on the topics financial planning, personal branding, networking and risk management. The rest will feature different keynote speakers.
"I have been in the industry all of my careers. Six years ago I decided that it is time that women step up to the plate. To take the opportunity to hone up our leadership skills," she concluded.
The conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Calgary on March 23-24. You can learn more at their website advancingwomenconference.ca.
