NCGA Holds Annual Women and Mentors Retreat

The National Corn Growers Association hosted the fourth annual Women and Mentor’s Retreat in St. Louis in June. The program offers a network for women and their male allies, providing mentorships and creating a pipeline of female leaders for NCGA and other agricultural organizations.

Participants at the most recent event noted that they were able to grow their leadership, communication, and professional skills while networking with others who are invested in elevating women’s voices in agricultural leadership. “The Women & Mentors Program has inspired me to continue growing as a leader while supporting new and emerging leaders,” says Joan Ruskamp, a participant from Nebraska. “Most importantly, this retreat builds a growing network of women supporting one another no matter what role each of us has in agriculture.”

Attendees met with their new mentorship cohorts, which are groups based on similar interests and goals. These networks provide valuable connections and new opportunities for participants.
