Empowering Voices

Women’s Communications Boot Camp is an intensive training opportunity for any female Farm Bureau member interested in building skills needed to communicate about agriculture and for Farm Bureau. To date, 210 women have graduated from the program. These skilled alumni provide Farm Bureau with a passionate and persuasive group of advocates who connect with influencers on the local, state and national levels.

Out of an abundance of caution, the American Farm Bureau Federation has made the difficult decision to cancel the Fall Session of Women’s Communications Boot Camp. Dates for the 2021 sessions of Boot Camp will be released this winter after the 2021 congressional calendar is released. 

Boot Camp has been a total game-changer in helping me develop my role in agriculture advocacy. I feel confident and motivated to speak out and be a voice for America's farmers. It has created spark in me!
—  Adrienne DeSutter, Women’s Communications Boot Camp Graduate and Illinois Farm Bureau Member

Women's Boot Camp graduates use their training: 

  • by positively influencing elected legislators.

  • by creating or acting upon local media opportunities to support Farm Bureau’s policy work.

  • by joining social media campaigns to share positive messages about agriculture.

  • by influencing consumers when planning and implementing outreach events.

  • by speaking about agricultural innovations and enterprises with a variety of audiences, community groups, in classrooms and with neighbors.
