Anyone who has met Isabelle Thibout will notice she is bursting with energy.
She has a genuine passion for agriculture, which shows through in all of her conversations.
The Advancing Ag mentee who works for Corteva Agriscience says she has gained a lot from the program.
“Advancing Ag is very important because it allows us to be paired with mentors,” says Thibout. “Mentors who have a lot of knowledge within the industry and it is an opportunity we would not have otherwise.”
She is also quick to point out she has gained from her mentor, Ben Graham, who is the president of AdFarm.

She says the tools she gains from this program will help her in achieving her professional goals.
”I have five main objectives on this program and those objectives will help me achieve that position of marketing manager.”
The networking aspect of the program has been a huge highlight for Thibout as well.
“It’s very nice to network within the ag industry and the support as well, we are supported and they are investing in us in a way where we participate in leadership conferences and so I would recommend people if they have the opportunity to apply to do so.”
The deadline to apply for the Advancing Ag program has been extended to March 29.
