Author: Cathryn Wojcicki

Apply to become a part of the third class of the NCGA Women and Mentors Program to be held in St. Louis on June 22-23. In addition to learning how to quiet their inner critic, exploring what they can learn from another woman’s leadership journey, and developing an action plan for their own mentorship journey, each participant gains a supportive group of peers committed to their success. Everyone will leave the retreat with a concrete action plan and a mentorship pairing to help each other reach their goals.


The Women and Mentors program provides an opportunity for women looking to find the next steps in their leadership journey to partner with a mentor who has traveled that path. Mentors, who can be of any gender, and help to foster leaders of tomorrow and learn how to share the wealth of knowledge and understanding accumulated through years of service. 


The program also includes a component for interested state, national and industry staff—creating a support network and a place for these women to discuss issues they face as women in a male-dominated industry.


Members of the new class will be welcomed to an ongoing quarterly virtual leadership lunch and join sessions already underway with the prior year’s participants.


Do you know of any women looking for the next step in their leadership journey? Anyone, male or female, who has a vested interest in increasing the number of women in leadership positions within agriculture? Please have them apply here.


The last day to apply for the program is May 19.
