Announcing the 2019 Rural Women's Summit!

 This Women's History Month, we are excited to announce the 2019 Rural Women's Summit, to be held October 27-29 in Greenville, SC. The Rural Women’s Summit emphasizes the role rural women play in creating a more equitable and inclusive nation.

This Summit is designed for rural practitioners, leaders, and advocates to articulate the broad civic, political, and cultural impact of women’s leadership in rural America, to name the ways rural women are agents of change, to call out the barriers rural women face every day, and to proclaim the powerful role rural women play in creating compassionate communities.
