For many people, August is a time of transition. Students are preparing to return to school, teachers and professors are preparing to welcome students and facilitate their growth during this year of learning, and parents are trying to determine how to manage their roles as logistics specialists and juggle professional and personal lives.
For our family, we are preparing for the final year our four children will be together in one school until our 5th grader is a senior in high school. Life will change again next school season – become messier and more interesting to manage, as if it isn’t already with four kids! (Side note: We are also preparing to have three elementary-aged students playing an instrument in band or orchestra … our home is going to be loud.)
But we adapt and find new solutions to manage these challenges and opportunities. The same will be the case in the organizations we work for, as well as for TWG in our work toward building a diverse, inclusive, and skilled workforce for agriculture and food. We will all learn, grow, and innovate around the challenges and opportunities in front of us.
One proven way we learn to do this is by building our skill set. We get intentional about growing in areas that help us become better humans and more successful in our day-to-day world. TWG’s Transformational Leadership Cohort training program is a great opportunity to focus on building our skills and developing in areas of cultural competence as a current or emerging leader. Today is the LAST DAY to register for this virtual program (it’s not too late to join us!), and we look forward to the impact our cohort will make across the agriculture and food sector – and we hope you will be a part of this impact. Find more information, including the program agenda and registration link, on our cohort webpage.
