New Interactive Online Sessions Help Women in Ag Cope with Stress
A new interactive online series is setting out to help women in agriculture cultivate resiliency by focusing on what they can control in these challenging times and help connect to them with resources and information that can help them weather stress. Raising awareness of farm stress is important, but offering some tools to help weather the stress is critical. This project has brought together American Agri-Women, District 11 Agri-Women, University of Minnesota Extension- Women in Ag Network and the Upper Midwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center (UMASH) to work on this effort. Funding is provided by a UMASH grant.
Series one will consist of six interactive sessions that will be up to 90 minutes in length and will include a topic for discussion (approximately 40- 45 minutes) and then an interactive Q & A period for the remaining time. Sessions are FREE and you may sign up using the Links on our Webinars Page. If you cannot make the sessions, all sessions will be recorded and posted on the American Agri-Women website.
