Table Talk: Assistive Tech for Women in [Agriculture] (AgrAbility National Training Workshop)


Tuesday, April 27, 2021

Cost: Free


Format: Webinar


Where: Online/Web-based


Sponsored By:

National AgrAbility Project

Description:

The number of women involved in production agriculture continues to expand whether they are traditional farmers, new and beginning farmers, or veteran farmers. Most people are aware that manufacturers design and build equipment, tools, and vehicles based on the average male’s height, weight, grip strength, etc. Most females do not fit the average male mold and use tools and equipment that are not designed for them.

How does this impact our role in AgrAbility when recommending assistive technology for our female clients? Join the conversation to discuss this topic. Learn about 1) resources for women in agriculture available through the Ag Safety and Health eXtension Community of Practice and Women in Ag Learning Network; 2) discuss considerations and adjustments required when recommending assistive technology for women, and 3) discuss any assistive technology that is women friendly.
