In support of Women's History Month and this year’s theme “Providing Healing, Promoting Hope”, Team AgLearn is providing the below information to encourage engagement in available events, courses, and resources.


The information below is a portion of content quoted from Secretary Tom Vilsack’s address to all USDA employees on March 01, 2022.

"At USDA, we celebrate Women’s History Month by showcasing the accomplishments of women to our culture, and society. We draw strength and inspiration from the remarkable women that came before us, who contributed to the fabric of our nation, and who today continue to make ripples of change and progress to make us a more perfect union. Throughout the month and year, an emphasis will be placed on women’s contributions to our shared history while also recognizing and acknowledging the impact and influence women have on our daily lives. We will focus on our commitments to building a modern workplace that advances diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility and that supports women leaders at all rungs of our organization."
