Workshop on Building the Future Workforce for Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources

The workshop to develop a strategy for attracting and preparing the next generation of workforce participants is getting off the ground, thanks to USDA-NIFA and commitments of support from CHS, Land O'Lakes, Monsanto, Dupont-Pioneer, Bayer and several scientific societies. The workshop will be a venue at which educators, employers, and other stewards of the future workforce can meet to discuss their common interests and respective expectations for attracting, educating, retaining, and training entrants to the food, agriculture, and natural resource enterprise. BANR still needs a few more partners from across industry and the disciplinary sectors to meet its goals for diverse support. If your organization is interested in supporting the workshop and would like to participate on the steering committee, please contact Robin Schoen, rschoen@nas.edu.
