Empowering Women Through Conversation
Women, Land and Legacy chapters empower and teach through peer-to-peer conversation and information sharing with resource professionals.
As an example of how this can work, at a recent WLL event on conservation and land leases in Tama County, presenter Sara Burges shared tools for landowners and tenants to get more conservation on the land.
After the presentation, participants spent time in small groups discussing the questions, “What roadblocks have you encountered [when having conversations with your tenant and/or landowner about conservation practices] and how did you overcome them?” From this, new questions and ideas were generated that provided an opportunity for other participants to give feedback based on their own experiences. This process demonstrated that everyone had information to share, and everyone in the room had an opportunity to speak.
