Empowering Women in Ag: Lessons from Abroad

Presented by Dr. Mustafa Ojonuba Jibrin (Post-Doctoral Research Associate, Washington State University Tree Fruit Extension Center)

Women are integral part of the food production landscape. They are farmers, researchers, marketers, etc. In this seminar, practical on-field efforts to improve the productivity of women farmers is highlighted. Using a project conducted in Nigeria to improve women farmers access to labor as template, lessons are drawn that could be practically applicable to Ag in the Wenatchee Valley and beyond.
