To save lives and eliminate poverty by increasing the availability of fresh, locally grown foods while expanding economic opportunities.
National Women In Agriculture Association (NWIAA) was founded and established February 2008 by Ms. Tammy Gray-Steele; who is the Executive Director. The organization is headquartered in Oklahoma City, OK. NWIAA is an agriculture outreach, fueled by sisterhood and diversity. NWIAA believes rural minority women have been often neglected; the lack of resources has stagnated rural development. NWIAA is the first minority woman owned and operated organization that provides innovative outreach education that attracts and sustains current and future generations with its innovative, spiritual, and USDA certified education techniques. The Georgia chapter was established to further this ongoing work and to empower more in the state by educating, developing and providing opportunities in agriculture.
Great things are achieved when adequate resources are coupled with energy, initiative, and perseverance of women in rural and urban communities.
Georgia NWIAA has entered into a partnership that will greatly strengthen and support the mission to provide innovative agricultural training and career education, preparing the next generation of STEM students for the future in Agriculture.
