Session 1

In the first session, we are excited to hear from award-winning chef, entrepreneur, and agriculture advocate, Louise Mabulo, as she discusses youth and sustainable solutions to food security. Mabulo promotes sustainable agriculture and farm-to-table cuisine and was recently awarded as a Young Champion of the Earth by United Nations Environment Programme.

Following Mabulo’s talk, there will be a Q+A panel to also include several University of Nebraska students studying agriculture and human dimensions. Please come with any questions you have or submit them at the end of the form when registering for the event. While time may not allow for all questions to be addressed in the one-hour webinar, we hope to follow-up with them after the event.


Session 2

In the second session, Letitia Obeng will lead discussion with six women currently doing work in ag and water.

The first block will explore ideas in action with those who are currently implementing multiple programs, or have program reflections and guidance regarding women in ag and water management.

The second block taps into the ideas and efforts of women working to empower women, advance educational opportunities and organize programming.

We will also hear from Grace Mukarusagara, a native Rwandan, who has collaborated with DWFI and done extensive work with women farmers in Africa.

A 10-minute Q+A session will follow the discussion. Please come with any questions you have or submit them at the end of the form when registering for the event. While time may not allow for all questions to be addressed in the webinar, we hope to follow-up with them after the event.
