There's still time to get your nomination in for the 2022 Influential Women in Canadian Agriculture program.

The IWCA is into its third year and has already honoured thirteen women in agriculture. 

Bree Rody is an Editor with Agriculture for  Annex Business Media and says they launched the program to not only acknowledge the work they do, but help connect them with other women in the industry through a mentorship program.

She says in a seemingly male dominated industry, it's one where you can often feel alone, or feel like you just want to make that extra connection. 

Rody says the program will select six women from any aspect of agriculture.

"In terms of criteria, we keep it simple. Are you a woman who works in agriculture in Canada?  And we ask nominators to discuss how they demonstrated leadership in their roles? How they demonstrated innovation and creativity in their roles?"

She says past honourees have ranged from farm owners, to communications and marketing. They've worked for Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada as researchers , and they've been veterinary scientists.

Nomination forms and  information on the 2022 Influential Women in Canadian Agriculture program is available here.

The nomination deadline is 11:59 pm Friday, March 25th.
