NORMAL – Nearly 900 young women and chaperones came to the Illinois State University campus LAST Friday for an agricultural career discovery conference.
The Women Changing the Face of Agriculture Conference is in its sixth year of connecting high school and college-aged women with professionals in the agriculture industry. This year's keynote speaker told the students there really are no limits for what they can do in the agriculture industry.
Participants networked with agriculture professionals in a career fair setting as well as breakout sessions that further explored their interests in agriculture. The conference is coordinated each year by the Illinois Agri-Women.
