Does it feel like you are on duty 24/7/365? You are the mistress of multi-tasking! Spinning plates, juggling balls you do it all. The Circle will be an ongoing group that will allow women juggling it all to have a safe space to share ideas, challenges, and successes. Each group meeting will have a brief education component on a topic related to women juggling it all followed by a discussion. The Circle will include Monica McConkey moderating the discussion, offering tips for managing everything, stress reduction and more. Monica will be joined by women farmers with lived experience who will offer some practical insights. We will also share other resources that can help those who are juggling it all.
Registration is limited for each session. Participants may come to one session, come every month or join the circle as needed across time. Each session will last one and a half hours. Participants do not need to attend the entire session. Circle participants are anonymous, and they choose how to participate – they can just listen; they can type in questions or comments, or they may unmute and verbalize questions or comments. The session will not be recorded. Participants cannot see each other, nor do they see each other’s names.
Programming brought to you by The Rural Resiliency Project. The Rural Resiliency Project is a project funded through the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire Foundation. The purpose of the project is to increase the resiliency and promote the vibrancy of rural Wisconsin focusing primarily on farmers, farm families, and those in related agricultural fields. Our programs seek to improve the lives of farmers and to enrich our understanding of the impact of farms, farmers, and agriculture on rural Wisconsin and beyond. Our collaborators for these virtual sessions include the Cultivating Resiliency Program and the Upper Midwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center (UMASH).
