    By AgCareers.com Team

    Published 1 years, 1 month ago

    Employers often allocate resources to recruiting diverse talent and are quick to tell candidates how welcoming of a work environment they'll find.

While there's a lot of talk about diversity in agriculture, we wanted data to back up the statement that the industry generally embraces and supports diversity in the workplace...

    National Speakers to Present at the 2019 SC AgriBiz ExpoTwo inspiring speakers will kick off the SC AgriBiz & Farm Expo this year. American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall and award-winning author and speaker Michele Payn will both offer enlightening and inspiring presentations during the opening of the seventh annual expo. The SC AgriBiz & Farm Expo will be held on Jan. 23 and 24 at the Florence Center in Florence, S.C. Starting at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Duvall will present during the Farmer Appreciation Breakfast compliments of AgFirst Farm Credit Banks. He will discuss the Farm Bill and other agricultural issues.

He was re-elected for a second term in January 2018.A Farm Bureau member since 1977, Duvall has held numerous Farm Bureau leadership positions at the state and county levels. As AFBF President, he has worked to unify agriculture and grow Farm Bureau's influence in our nation's capital. He and Agriculture Secretary, Sonny Perdue are good friends and they work together to promote and strengthen agriculture. In 2017, President Donald Trump appointed Duvall to the White House Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations.
