Cultivating Resiliency for Women in Agriculture

Cultivating Resiliency for Women in Agriculture  12/7/18Women in agriculture often juggle multiple roles on farms/ranches, in families, and off-farm jobs.  In spite of the stress, they are often the glue that helps to hold families and farms/ranches together, sometimes hanging on by a thread.

Resiliency is key to making sure that thread doesn’t break.

“Cultivating Resiliency for Women in Agriculture” is a series of six online webinars to benefit the well-being of women.  Through the sessions, participants learn to focus on what is within their control during challenging times and connect to resources and information to help weather the storms of stress.  Sessions are free, with registration for all sessions being processed at: www.americanagriwomen.org/webinars.  

All of the online webinars will begin with a topic-focused 40-45 minute presentation, followed by a free-flow time for questions and answers, discussion and conversation among participants.  Recordings of each session will be posted on the American Agri-Women website.  The dates and topics for the live sessions are

  • Dec. 14 - Impact of Farming and Ranching Stress for Women 101
  • Jan. 11 - Self-Care Tips to Help Reduce Stress
  • Jan. 25 - You Can’t Pour from an Empty Cup - How do you fill it up to support your-self and others?
  • Feb. 8 - Building and Maintaining Relationships in Stressful Times
  • March 8 - Increasing Your Joy and Happiness While Living a Farm Life

“Cultivating Resiliency for Women in Agriculture” is a joint undertaking of American Agri-Women, University of Minnesota Extension and the Upper Midwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center.  Behavioral health specialists Shauna Reitmeier and Brenda Mack will lead the sessions.  Both women have deep roots in agriculture and rural living.
