BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, US — Women in Agribusiness has launched a Resource Center providing insight via short video presentations and interviews with industry experts.

Creation of the center was precipitated by questions arising during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic but it will be available for the long term to share knowledge with its audience, said Joy O’Shaughnessy, event director of the Women in Agribusiness Summit and chief operating officer of HighQuest Group, the parent company of Women in Agribusiness.

“Women in Agribusiness recognizes that those working in our industry are facing a multitude of questions and challenges resulting from the impact of the coronavirus, so we thought that tapping into our vast network of experts to provide some answers and guidance would be beneficial to all,” she said.

Those interested in perusing the video offerings can turn to to learn more about:

  • The CARES Act and what it means for businesses
  • Leading during a crisis
  • Navigating corporate financial distress during the pandemic
  • Addressing contractual obligations in the agribusiness supply chain
  • The agricultural workforce and COVID-19
  • Success while working virtually

These informational videos are hosted by Women in Agribusiness, an initiative that took root in 2012, intent on helping agribusinesses recruit, retain and advance women in the sector. The movement has grown to bring together over 800 attendees a year at the annual Women in Agribusiness Summit, which has fostered an international community of women who are passionate about agribusiness and sharing industry knowledge year-round to help professional women know their business better.
