Meet the Team
In 2002, Purdue Extension hosted the first Midwest Women in Agriculture conference. Due to its popularity over the next several years, the annual event led to the formation of the Purdue Women in Agriculture Team in 2006. The team's goal is to help address the educational needs of women employed in or involved with the agricultural industry. The team is composed of Purdue Extension Educators and Specialists.
