The format of our events...
Each event is structured the same so that we can focus more on the people and less on the logistics.
Our Event Host
A local organization hosts each of our events. Thanks to our approachable community and inspiring speakers, our list of hosts are referral-based. We're excited to announce the upcoming meetup will be hosted by Granular.
Granular is helping farmers meet the demand using software and analytics to make farming more profitable and efficient today and in the future.
The evening of the event, the host and their featured speakers will share their inspiring (and true!) stories with the community. These speakers come from within the organization and are women who have decided to share their story with our community for the purpose of making an impact. We ask the speakers to share their unique stories, in a similar format, so the audience can easily follow along from one speaker to the next. Come to hear what these women love to do for work, about the challenges they overcame to get where they are today, and the goals they are pursuing as they look ahead.
