About our Team.


Our website is a place where you can interact with us and other women in agriculture through our social media links. All of us share many of the same concerns and hopes for the future of agriculture and our families. You’ll find stories of successful women in agriculture to inspire you. As women’s roles in agriculture continue to change, we want to challenge and support you in your endeavors. If you are looking for classes and other events, this is the place to be. You’ll find information on activities offered by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Women in Agriculture, as well as links to other organizations and events.

Our Mission

Our mission is to improve the quality of life in Iowa by providing research-based educational programs that expand agricultural enterprise, improve natural resource management, and support the community of women in agriculture. 

We accomplish this mission through exciting curricula and programs, engaging storytelling, innovative research, and gratifying partnerships. Our plans of work and measures of success revolve around the following four strategic goals.

  1. Programming: improve the quality of our extension and outreach for women in agriculture by managing internal program development processes.  
  2. Communication: expand connections among women in agriculture by managing external communications and stakeholder satisfaction.  
  3. Capacity-building: support ISUEO Agriculture and Natural Resources (ANR) programs by managing educator collaboration and building organizational capacity.
  4. Public value: create public value through the land-grant university by managing financial resources for greatest stewardship and impact.    

Our Commitment

The Iowa women we serve are farmers, agribusiness leaders, community volunteers, family communicators, and visionaries of tomorrow’s rural landscapes. They are influential decision makers. As educators, our vision is to work together to develop new programs and create strong connections among learners. Through courses, peer groups, online networks and special events, we encourage women in agriculture to increase their knowledge and take important actions towards improving their lives and enhancing Iowa agriculture.
