ACI President Amy Cornell said this year the council decided to launch a seminar series focusing on Hoosier women involved in agribusiness, because they believed there was a need to be filled when it came to teaching and educating women involved in the agriculture industry.

“The seminars provide all the tools, resources and information that women in agribusiness need to be successful in their careers,” Cornell said.

The workshop will focus on teaching women how to overcome common behaviors that hold women back in the workplace.

“Women don’t have to be in agribusiness to attend,” Cornell said, adding that a big part of the seminars is just to help women in general advance in their careers, whether they are involved in the agriculture industry or not.

The seminar will feature Sally Helgesen, author of the book “How Women Rise,” as well as a top-ranked executive coach at Marshall Goldsmith.

Cornell said the event is open to women of all ages and career levels.
