Creating a supportive environment for women in agriculture and water leadership is important for ensuring future water food security around the globe. Water and agriculture are closely tied and in the first two sessions of our webinar series, we'll hear from women currently making an impact in this space through various programs or projects, and from those specifically working to empower women, advance educational opportunities and organize programming related to women in ag and water.
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.
