Our first ever Women In Ag Science meet-up at the American Phytopathological Society Annual Meeting Plant Health 2019 in Cleveland, Ohio.
WOMEN IN AG SCIENCE
INSPIRE. EDUCATE. CONNECT.
"Having a strong technical background, such as a PhD, is very useful for speaking with the inventors and reviewing information related to the discovery. It is also helpful to understand the process of academic research, as it helps me understand the concerns and motivations of the inventors."
-Julia Miller, PhD
Our mission is to highlight women in agricultural sciences by telling their stories and to break the misconception of Ag Science as a career.
Increase women representation in Ag Science fields and transform society by creating a more accessible, inclusive, and diverse agriculture and science.
