Women and Mentors Retreat

Women and Mentors Retreat

NCGA’s Women and Mentors Program focuses on creating a diverse network of individuals who wish to empower women in agriculture. The network is purposely and intentionally built by bringing women together at the Women and Mentors Retreat, where mentors and mentees will be matched to build a strong bond throughout the year (and beyond!). This group of women is already filled with insight and strong connections, and we look forward to building on this strong network for the future!


Women who would like to grow their leadership skills and get more involved in associations at the state and national level are encouraged to apply as mentees. On the flip side, anyone who would like to help women achieve their leadership goals is encouraged to apply to be a mentor. This program is open to staff in addition to growers. Staff will be grouped into cohorts of mentors and mentees and will focus on their careers, rather than association leadership.
