On Wednesday, March 18th at 2 p.m. EDT Agriculture Deputy Secretary Krysta Harden will host a Google+ Hangout with Dr. Linda Young, Chief Mathematical Statistician and Director of Research and Development of USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service, and Marji Guyler-Alaniz, photographer and founder of FARMHER as we celebrate women farmers and ranchers on National Ag Day.
The discussion will be about how women are represented in agriculture – both in statistics and in images. We will talk about USDA efforts to collect better statistics about women in agriculture to reflect the work women are doing on the farm, and learn about photography projects documenting farmers. We will also be taking your questions.
Submit your questions in advance on Twitter using hashtag #womeninag
. You can also send them to email@example.com.
See you Wednesday!
