COVID-19 AND OUR CONFERENCE: ADVANCING WOMEN CONFERENCE GOING VIRTUAL
Thank you for your interest in our conference. As many of you may know, our AWC WEST 2020 conference was cancelled in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our AWC EAST 2020 conference, scheduled for November in Niagara Falls, has also been cancelled due to COVID-19.
To support our women in agriculture community, we are hosting a new AWC 2020 virtual conference to connect women in agriculture through a dynamic new online experience.
Like so many people around the world, women farm producers, agribusiness owners, entrepreneurs, students and all the businesses that support women in agriculture are facing unprecedented challenges and uncertainties during this pandemic. While COVID-19 has taken away our ability to meet in-person at our scheduled conferences this year, we want to help facilitate connectedness within our community – something that is needed now more than ever.
Through this virtual conference, we’ll carry on with our goal of advancing women in agriculture by providing an online experience where conference attendees can connect with their community, find encouragement through guest speakers, hear from other women in ag and build the skills needed to run a business in this unfamiliar and constantly changing world.
We commit to another update soon that will provide details for the new Advancing Women in Agriculture virtual conference. Stay tuned!
