AgFirst partners with Cultivating Change to empower LGBTQ college agriculturists

AgFirst is sponsoring the Cultivating Change Foundation’s Collegiate Ambassador Program, which promotes academic and professional advancement by empowering Lesbian, Gay, Bi and Transgender (LGBT) college agriculturists.

The national nonprofit works to value and elevate LGBTQ agriculturists through advocacy, education and community. While the foundation has strong collegiate programs at several top agriculture colleges, AgFirst will work with foundation leaders to help:

  • Support the facilitation of chapter networking events at the annual summit.
  • Reach out to relevant universities to network and create additional chapters.
  • Advise chapter leadership on strategic goals and programming.
  • Serve as a liaison between chapters, committees and the foundation.
