Women’s Advisory Council

Last updated on July 20th, 2021 at 02:35 pm

Female agricultural producers are invited to volunteer as a member of the AgriSafe Women’s Advisory Council (AWAC). The AWAC is a unique opportunity for women leaders in agriculture to impact the health and safety of female agriculture producers. The council is comprised of 6-10 rural female leaders from around the country.

Once on the AWAC, members provide input on the training materials and educational resources developed for women by AgriSafe. AWAC is also charged with assisting AgriSafe to design, launch and promote educational initiatives that can reduce farm related illness, injury and fatalities.

Expectations:

  • Attend virtual meetings 4-6 times per year;
  • Commit two to four hours per month on council activities during a 12 month term
  • Provide honest, constructive feedback on safety & health messages or strategies to engage women in agriculture; and
  • Volunteer time to represent the Council, if needed, at conferences or meetings.
