Empowering farm and ranch women to manage information systems used in critical decision-making processes and build local networks throughout Wyoming is the goal of a University of Wyoming (UW) Extension program in Powell.
The program is based on Annie’s Project, a program for women in agriculture with a passion for business and being involved in their family operations. The Annie’s Project program was developed by Iowa State University Extension and is offered around Wyoming.
“Annie was raised in a small farming community,” said Sandra Frost, extension educator. “She was dedicated to being an involved business partner and running the farm with her husband. Though they struggled, they accomplished much.”
This women’s empowerment program is offered in six sessions from noon-4 p.m. Saturdays, Jan. 26, Feb. 16 and 23, and March 2, 9 and 16.
