4. Developing a Framework for Mentorship
As women continue to forge a path to gender equity within the agri-food industry, there are no better allies than those who helped blaze the trail. In fact, the latest Women in Food and Agriculture Survey revealed that the majority of respondents consider a lack of mentorship opportunities to be a barrier to success. Join us as we explore the value of mentorships, how to get the most from a mentorship conversation, and establish a mutually beneficial mentor/mentee relationship.
