Event description
A project to research and promote the wide range of exciting and fulfilling agriculture, food, and natural resources careers in Iowa.

About this event

The Iowa Department of Education, in support of the Future Ready Iowa Initiative, is proud to announce a new partnership with the Governor's STEM Advisory Council, Agribusiness Association of Iowa, Iowa Institute for Cooperatives, Iowa FFA Association, Iowa Association of Municipal Utilities, Iowa Restaurant Association and Iowa-Nebraska Equipment Dealers Association to develop resources to highlight a wide range of careers in agriculture, food and natural resources fields in Iowa.

Employers from these and related industries (utilities, manufacturing, etc...) are invited to participate in this employer-only roundtable/focus group opportunity to review and discuss proposed statewide career awareness materials, which will include not only descriptions of various positions, but also career pathways clearly showing how to enter and successfully advance through these careers in Iowa.

A total of 5 virtual events are being held in October 2021. Employers are welcome to join any of these sessions that best fit their schedules. A small number of seats are also open for educators, workforce advisors, and other support partners. Additional information and resources will be sent to each group prior to each session. A finished product is planned for release in December 2021.

Similar projects were completed for other industries like Health Science, Building Trades, and Advanced Manufacturing and can be downloaded at SectorPartnerhips.EducateIowa.gov. Contact Joe.Collins@iowa.gov for additional information about this project and to offer any feedback if unable to attend.
