Study Conducted On Barriers Women Face In Agriculture

A study is being conducted by the Canadian Agricultural Human Resources Council into the kind of barriers women face when trying to advance in the industry.
 
Project manager Debra Hauer says this study will look at what has been done on this issue already in Canada, and talking to women in the industry about what they think the barriers are.
 
"Based on that information, we will determine what the needs are of women in agriculture and identify where the gaps might be. Where there are needs for the development of new programs or new materials, and then we will develop what's needed. To improve access to agricultural leadership programs for women, or perhaps having assessments for agricultural organizations so people can determine whether or not these organizations are inclusive."
 
Hauer says this project, called "Supporting the Advancement of Women in Agriculture", will help to ensure that the full capabilities of all people involved in the industry are realized.
