WATCH: The role of women in agriculture



Watch as Mackenzie Skeels speaks with Nuffield Scholar Brenda Schoepp for Know Ideas Media about the various ways that women contribute to agriculture globally.

About Brenda Schoepp in her own words:

“I inspire and nurture the growth of individuals through mentorship with compassion, integrity and authenticity. I believe in and promote equality – the standing up for the excellence of each other, and in dignity – the acceptance of all individuals and their gifts – and am accountable to these values. I promote literacy, gender equality and health as foundations for future food security and as a global leader empower people through a multidisciplinary, regenerative approach to grow food, protect environments, strengthen trade and secure financial independence for themselves, their families and their communities while respecting the historical and cultural space in which they live”. – Brenda Schoepp
