Diane McKenzie is a farmer from Southern Alberta and recently earned her MA in Cultural, Social and Political Thought from the University of Lethbridge. Her research focus was on women who farm and the intergenerational transfer of family farms. She actively farms with her family and brings an insider view to her research and to advancing women’s involvement in agriculture and agricultural business. Diane is available for conferences, speaking engagements and has developed professional development workshops regarding women and girl’s inclusion in agriculture . She enjoys speaking within the agricultural community to men and women, girls and boys regarding what roadblocks may form, and how they can be removed for women and girls to reach their full potential in agriculture, agriculture business, agricultural boards and governing institutions. Using academic research and experiential knowledge her aim is to identify and discuss publicly possibilities of change for women and girls within the agricultural industry and within the family farm. This timely topic will broaden one’s perspective on family relations allowing for the more beneficial inclusion of women and girls in the farm succession process and agricultural business as a whole. Booking and participating in a workshop on women’s inclusion in agriculture benefits everyone.
Family Farm Business facilitation can also be improved by acknowledging the importance of female participation in determining the success of the family business. Please reach out for more information about booking your agriculture, family farm based professional development workshop with Diane.
