Advancing Women Conference East has wrapped leaving the women who attended inspired.

Erin Leduc, Owner of Wanna Make It Farm, in Moose Creek Ontario tells Rural Roots Canada the Advancing Women Conference East showed her there are a lot more women in the agriculture industry then she thought.

Leduc says the engaging and passionate speakers shared a lot of knowledge and experience and encouraged them in the work they do.

“(They told us) to help support each other, that we seem to take on a lot more than is perceived and we’re always trying to keep it all together and run multiple schedules and do what we’re passionate about and that we all manage to make it happen and it’s not some idealistic thing it kinda just works as it does and just continue to persevere through that,” Leduc says.

Leduc says she has been telling a lot of women and men about the topics the conference covered and how well it is put together.

“It kept you engaged and involved the whole time there were a few networking coffee breaks and a networking session before dinner so you get to do a little bit of socializing with new people and staying engaged throughout the presentation, it flowed so well.  You start bright and early on the second day going until 4:30, 5 o’clock, they tried to put as much as they could into the two days and well done too.

Leduc says she was so impressed by the conference she is looking at attending the Advancing Women West Conference in Calgary next March.
