Being an ambassador with Farm Journal Foundation taught me how to have productive conversations with a variety of people, even those whose viewpoints were different from my own developing skills to engage with many people from all walks of life have really helped me to see the value of a diverse and inclusive workplace, and I continue to advocate for that in the agricultural industry and beyond."
