It is no surprise that diversity on our farms has increased exponentially. Each of us has the opportunity to define whether we see diversity on our farms as an opportunity or a challenge. Stephen Covey said, “We must seek first to understand, then to be understood.” For a moment consider this: What if we turned our judgment and frustration of each other’s differences into curiosity and appreciation?  Attendees will have the opportunity to listen to firsthand accounts from individuals within the pork industry about how cultural, gender, and generational diversity has impacted their careers followed by a facilitated discussion on how we can embrace diversity on our farms.
