Janie Hipp Participates in White House Discussion on Women in Agriculture

Our colleague, Janie Hipp (Chickasaw), Director of the Indigenous Food & Agriculture Initiative participated in a dialogue at the White House on the future of women in agriculture.

Participants were welcomed by Secretary Tom Vilsack and Deputy Secretary Harden of USDA and Cecilia Muñoz, Director of the White House Domestic Policy Council.  In attendance were representatives from agribusinesses, universities, youth organizations, and nonprofit organizations, all discussing barriers women face in the agricultural sector.
