Let’s change the status of women in ag entrepreneurship in Canada!
WEKH invites you to participate in a free 90-minute virtual event on November 4th focused on women in ag entrepreneurship in the prairie provinces.
The driving force for this event came from the publication of a report by the Saskatchewan regional WEKH hub at the Hill and Levene Schools of Business at the University of Regina, in collaboration with the central WEKH hub at Ryerson University. The findings from this report highlight the many challenges women entrepreneurs in Saskatchewan face in agriculture, stemming from structural issues of power and inequality and, in particular, the continued construction of ag as a male dominated industry. The report also revealed a number of opportunities and outlined several recommendations to continue the advancement of women in ag entrepreneurship.
We look forward to sharing the findings and recommendations contained in this report that is both meaningful and impactful, so we can create a plan of action that has the potential to disrupt this space and open up more opportunities for women entrepreneurs in the ag industry across Canada.
