(Calgary) – The agenda for the upcoming virtual Advancing Women in Agriculture conference is set.

One of the speakers for the upcoming conference is Michelle Cederberg, who will discuss how to find a good work-life balance to help with your energy levels, which will allow you to fulfill more of your goals.

Glacier FarmMedia Conference Director Iris Meck says they are keeping to a theme that has served them well in the past.

“It’s going to follow our usual presentation path of talking about financial management and independence, communication, networking, advocacy, and just gathering all the tips and tools you need to increase your confidence and to build your leadership skills,” Meck said.

Cherie Copithorne-Barnes from CL Ranches in Jumping Pound, Alberta, will talk about how to stand up for agriculture and what you believe in with a little courage.

Meck says there will be a lot of information to take in and people to meet at the conference.

“One great thing about Advancing Women is that it allows an opportunity for women all across the industry, whether you’re a student studying agriculture in university and college, farmers, industry leaders, entrepreneurs, grower association members, corporate agri-business.”

Fiona Lake, who owns the Rural Drone Academy in Queensland, Australia, will also be speaking.

“We are going to be able not only to hear the presenters but be able to communicate with the presenters through the chat line.  We’ve got speakers that are selling books, and so you’ll be able to go in and purchase books from them.”

Dr. Sylvain Charlebois will also be speaking about how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the agri-food sector and the consequences and opportunities following this crisis.

Registration for the conference will close on Monday, November 23rd, at 5 p.m. Mountain Time.
