FCC awards honour women in agriculture

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Farm Credit Canada (FCC) is seeking nominations for the 2013 FCC Rosemary Davis Award, which recognizes and honours Canadian women for their leadership and commitment to agriculture.

Individuals are encouraged to take time to recognize a woman who is making a difference in the agriculture industry. Self-nominations are also encouraged. Candidates are selected based on their demonstration of leadership — through giving back to their community and the agriculture industry — as well as their vision and passion for the industry. Since 2006, FCC has honoured 30 outstanding women with the Rosemary Davis Award.

Winners will be announced in March 2013. They will have the opportunity to attend the Simmons School of Management Leadership Conference in Boston on April 2, 2013.

“By attending this conference, winners of the award will have the unique opportunity to network and share knowledge,” says Kellie Garrett, senior vice-president, strategy, knowledge and reputation at FCC. “They will also have the chance to hear from some of the most respected women in the world who, just like them, decided to make a difference in their communities and the global village.”

FCC Rosemary Davis winners must be 21 years of age or older and actively involved in Canadian agriculture. Entries will only be received online at www.fccrosemarydavisaward.ca.
