Women in Agribusiness is a business unit of HighQuest Group, a global agribusiness consulting, events, and media firm. The Women in Agribusiness initiative took root in 2012 and produced its first conference the same year for hundreds of delighted women in Minneapolis, MN. This year we are excited to be celebrating our 6th year in Minneapolis, Minnesota. With the passionate and early support of a National Advisory Board of senior-level industry executives, the WIA mission and strategy were formulated. WIA is an agribusiness community where women will develop valuable professional skills, network with influential executives, and learn about the industry outlooks and trends in an interactive and innovative forum. Our mission is to help all organizations understand the value of recruiting, retaining and advancing women in agribusinesses.
