Annie’s Project is a nationally awarded workshop series for women. It’s focus is farm/ranch management and dynamic decision-making in the complex world of agriculture.
Mission: To empower farm women to be better business partners through networks and by managing and organizing critical information.
Who Should Attend: The target audience is farmwomen with a passion for agri-business and/or involvement in an agri-business they married into, were a part of all their life, inherited or just plain wanted to start on their own.
Program Topics: topics include critical decision-making and information areas addressing:
- Production risk management
- Marketing risk management
- Financial risk management
- Estate planning resources
- Legal risk management
- Human resources risk management
Participants are encouraged to share their own perspectives and approaches so all may benefit from group experiences.
More Program Information: According to the Census of Agriculture, the number of female principal farm operators in Texas increased 10 percent between 2007 and 2012. The complex task of balancing work and family makes the concerns of farm/ranch women unique.
Annie’s Project is designed to provide a support network of other women facing similar challenges. All program classes enable sufficient time for discussions in a “safe harbor” learning environment. Everyone is encouraged to share their observations, concerns and questions.
