Ag Womens Network is happy to announce the launch of our new Facebook page. AWN has nearly tripled in size in the past 6 months. To create stronger connections within the agriculture and agri-food industry, it is important AWN have a public presence on Facebook.
“Being able to talk with other women and share experiences is empowering our members and has always been our main goal. We realize the whole industry cares about the topic of gender balance and now we have a forum to turn the volume up on this conversation.” Says Jennifer Christie, AWN Chairperson.
By sharing content and events with a wider audience, AWN wants to help shift the conversation from focusing on the barriers to finding ways the industry can advance more women into leadership. Multiple different studies have now shown there are benefits in customer focus and financial performance when leadership is more gender balanced.
AWN welcomes all members of the Facebook group to ‘Like’ Ag Women’s Network on Facebook. We will continue to use the group to facilitate private discussions among AWN members. The group will remain closed to members only.
AWN communication team will do our best to limit duplication between the group and the page. We welcome colleagues and friends who are interested in AWN to like the page and support the advancement of women in agriculture.
