Madeline SchultzMadeline Schultz, Women in Ag program manager, was interviewed on Successful Farming Radio September 23, 2019.

"Usually there’s some guidelines for members about what they can expect, what they can do, and what they cannot do–especially with grower cooperatives–so the members need to understand what those policies and guidelines are," she says. "And, there’s usually an application process."

Schultz was also the subject of a September 22nd Fort Dodge Messenger story, "Leading the way for women in ag and beyond."

"At Iowa State University, I feel like there are a lot of opportunities for professional development,” she said. “In some of our agri-businesses across the state, some do, but some they don’t so I really felt like I wanted to give more women the opportunity for professional development. Not everyone has those opportunities. We are a university. That is what we do. We really wanted to expand it and reach out to broader audience."
