A Message from our President: On International Women’s Day, Let’s #BreaktheBias

March 8th marks International Women’s Day, yet one day isn’t enough to do justice to the incredible work carried out by women in agriculture everywhere. All year long, let’s work to amplify the voices of women leading the much-needed transformation of our food systems!
