From AI to Blockchain: How Women Are Leading the Future of Farming and Food
Award-winning journalist Amy Wu will speak on how women are leading the field in agtech to tackle major threats to our food supply.
AAJA-SF Bay Area is honored to host a virtual conversation with award-winning journalist and filmmaker Amy Wu on her work about how diverse women entrepreneurs are using agtech (the integration of agriculture and technology) to tackle some of the largest threats to our food supply, including climate change.
Amy will discuss her new book “From Farms to Incubators: Women Innovators Revolutionizing How Our Food Is Grown” with chapter president Cecilia Lei (host of SF Chronicle’s Fifth and Mission podcast), and share how her work evolved from journalist to entrepreneur. The discussion will follow with a Q&A.
The conversation will also feature Lalitha Visvawaran, a Bay Area small farmer and owner of Jellicles Farm in Sunol, Calif.
The event is open to the public (you don’t need to be a member of AAJA!) We highly encourage you to read Amy’s book to get the most out of the discussion! Attendees can purchase the book at a special discount rate. A percentage of book sales will be donated to AAJA scholarship and educational programs!
