Women Leading in Ohio Agribusiness
Even though women have been working in agribusiness for decades, there are particular challenges that face women in professional agribusiness roles. Through small group discussions and input from members, OABA is pleased to offer a forum for women who are looking for resources from experts and peers alike to face these challenges - the Women Leading in Ohio Agribusiness program.
The program offers professional development, networking opportunities and more to OABA’s female leaders. Women new or seasoned in the industry are invited and encouraged to participate and share with one another.
Impact & Connection Series
The Ohio AgriBusiness Association is pleased to announce new leadership development and networking opportunities for the Women Leading in Ohio Agribusiness Program. Through the Impact podcast series and Connection networking events, Ohio’s female leaders will have the opportunity to dive into leadership topics while also networking with their peers.
Through the new, 8-month podcast series, Ohio’s agribusiness women will be inspired by the stories of other women in agriculture who have been successful in their various roles. Each episode will be 45-60 minutes long and consist of an interview with one guest. The first episode will be available in May with subsequent episodes releasing the first week of every month.
Connection Networking Hour
The Connection networking hour provides the opportunity for women to come together and discuss the monthly podcast, while also networking with their peers. A safe space to explore the podcast topics together, Connection will include large group discussions, as well as smaller breakout discussions, with plenty of opportunity to get to know fellow agribusiness leaders.
Registration for Impact & Connection grants an individual access to all eight podcasts and each month’s networking hour. All podcasts will be available throughout the year. Registration for the series is $240 for OABA members and $300 for non-members.
Group rates are available for OABA members – contact Janice Welsheimer at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Register by May 4 to take full advantage of the networking hours throughout the series!
