Western Growers Relaunches Western Growers Women

We are happy to announce the relaunch of the WGW Program in the Fall of 2023. Join us on October 6, 2023 in Santa Maria, CA to discover the latest courses, gain insights from our esteemed panelists, including program graduates and inspiring women leaders. Following the panels, we will embark on a farm tour at Bonipak. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity. To register for the event, please find the page here.

Western Growers believes that women are essential to the future of agriculture, which is why we have developed WG Women, a program that prepares women for positions of leadership within WG member companies and the broader fresh produce industry.

Originally launched in the Winter of 2020, the WG Women Program intended to provide women with a series of regional-based activities aimed at supporting professional growth and promoting industry leadership by creating opportunities for networking, mentorship, leadership training, advocacy training and community outreach.

We will be offering both online and in person professional development courses, including Arbinger leadership training as well as media and social media training. We look forward to building on the previous courses with refreshed trainings, more in-person networking events, and advocacy trips to Sacramento and DC as well.

We encourage you to explore how the WG Women Program can help you achieve your career goals. You can find a newly updated course catalog, the 2023-2024 calendar events, and most recent news on the WG Women website. Visit for more information or to sign up for program activities.
