Ceres was the Roman goddess of agriculture and grain. The word cereal is derived from her name. She was beloved for her service to mankind in giving the gift of the harvest, the reward for cultivation of the soil.

Ceres Rising is a metaphor for what is happening with women in agriculture today. More women are coming back to agriculture, to their roots, to raising our food and running ag businesses. This creates a need to allow more women at the meeting table. There's momentum--but that doesn't mean there can't be more.

This book will deepen your understanding of women leaders in agriculture (we call them WLAs) and it will serve as a guide for young and more experienced women alike. Women's advancement as leaders in the ag world requires us to continue to be strong, focused, and effective managers with a relentless passion for learning and development.

Each chapter of this book should educate, empower, and entertain you. We share real stories of WLAs, together with tips on how to manage tough personnel situations, strengthen your leadership and find your passion. Some chapters may be more relevant than others. We recognize that women are at different places in their work-life journeys.
