In the Press: WIA Summit 2022

Two thousand and twenty-two was a record-breaking year for the Women in Agribusiness (WIA) Summit. We had the most attendees (850+), most sponsorships (53+), most students (30+), and most compliments ever received! It also was our debut year in Dallas, Texas, September 26-28, where we did the two-step and line dancing with some of the best instructors around, and enjoyed down home Texas meals at the event and the off-site reception at Gilley's.

That doesn't even address the multitude of industry-leading discussions and lively presentations we had on immigration with Sari Long of Faegre Drinker and Lainie Michelle Appleby of Guberman Appleby, or supply chain disruption with BASF's Cynthia Stanton, or ag innovations with our ever-popular panel of ingenious entrepreneurs. We talked C-suite aspirations with our Executive Profiles Panel comprised of leaders from Stoel Rives, Bayer, GAFTA, AquaBounty Technologies, Western States Equipment Company and Olam Brazil. And we can't forget our recognizing the 2022 WIA Demeter Award of Excellence recipients, or the handing off the WIA event director torch from Joy O'Shaughnessy to Carrie Vita. There was much more learning and networking going on.

We also had RFD-TV's Tammi Arender conducting live interviews all three days of the event, and welcomed other press as well -- from CropLife, Successful Farming and The Jacobsen/FastMarkets. Take a peek below at the press coverage and other stories issued about the 2022 event, and mark your calendar to join us in Nashville for WIA Summit 2023, September 26-28.
