The North American Agricultural Advisory Network (NAAAN) is an emerging formal network of stakeholders in agricultural advisory services. The NAAAN links existing agricultural extension communities with one another and with stakeholders in Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. The NAAAN connects with counterparts in other countries through its membership in the Global Forum for Rural Advisory Services (GFRAS), and focuses its work in three thematic areas: biodefense/biosecurity and management of natural disasters; climate change and soil and water management; and youth skill building and career development.
Together We Grow is a national industry consortium for the U.S. Food and Agriculture sector, building the workforce that will feed the future, with a focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion across a membership that includes many of the largest agribusiness interests in the United States, academic institutions, NGOs and governmental institutions. Together We Grow champions best practices that advance cultures of belonging, engages with our members to build inclusive pipelines of talent that will drive future innovation, and elevates awareness of the dynamic, STEM-forward careers offered within the U.S. agriculture industry. While Together We Grow will office out of the larger Hydro building, it will work closely with partners in Terra.
