Education is an integral part of American Agri-Women!

The American Agri-Women (AAW) believe in a public educated about modern agriculture because an increased knowledge of agriculture allows individuals to make informed personal choices. Our members believe that informed citizens are able to participate in establishing the policies that will support a competitive agricultural industry that can sustainably produce food and fiber for a growing population.

AAW is dedicated to increasing Agricultural literacy for current and future generations. Agricultural literacy is defined as: an understanding of agriculture’s history and current economic, social and environmental significance to all Americans. This understanding includes some knowledge of food and fiber production, processing and domestic and international marketing.

Road to Influence

AAW is making history.

We are planting the future for dynamic women leaders to become a voice for truth in rural communities and agriculture.

Members can apply now through June 28 to this innovative experience, combining traditional learning formats with peer collaboration to inspire and develop leaders for our organization and the broader agriculture industry.

Skills for Home, Work, Community & Volunteer

This three-phase journey focuses on providing women in rural communities, agriculture, and agribusiness, an authentic learning experience designed to identify and move beyond limiting beliefs and behaviors, ultimately growing into stronger leaders for American Agri-Women and beyond.



Three Phases to Fulfillment

Phase ONE, participants turn inward and engage in self-reflection and study, using a variety of tools to develop a deep understanding of self, communication styles/effective communication, emotional intelligence, and beyond.
Phase TWO apply understanding of self to working in teams by developing core competencies related to motivation, conflict resolution, building trust and collaboration.
Phase THREE put learned concepts into action as the group selects from a list of ‘needs’ generated by the AAW leaders to develop a project or initiative from concept to completion.
