Women Changing the Face of Agriculture is a project of Illinois Agri-Women (IAW) that showcases a career exploration event for young women interested in agriculture. This event strives to give women the opportunity to explore different career paths, interact with industry professionals, and receive accurate information firsthand from women in agriculture.

Looking forward to hosting you again for this career exploration event.
