Welcome to WFAN's New Website
We’re so excited to launch Women, Food and Agriculture Network’s new website!
In order to better serve the women in our network and tell your stories, we decided we needed a more agile, user-friendly platform. On this new site, you will see all of the great resources, blog posts, and event listings from our old website, plus some new features.
With our new website, we’re excited to roll out a few new pieces of WFAN content. Some of the new areas to explore include:
Story tip line: Are you or a woman you know doing incredible work around protecting and improving land, water, food access and creating a just food system? Let us know who we should do a future profile on through our story tip line. We’ll also use this tip line to keep track of women who are willing to be interviewed by the media.
New blog content: We have a book review of Emergent Strategy by adrienne maree brown, two profiles on women leaders, and a survey about the Green New Deal, plus more great profiles and content coming soon!
Plate to Politics Audio Training: In an effort to improve our ability to provide leadership training to women across the country, we’re introducing an audio training component to our Plate to Politics program. Watch for upcoming episodes featuring women who have run for and are serving on city council and as soil and water district commissioners.
Improved calendar: In order to make our upcoming events easier to navigate, we’re excited about our new event calendar where you can find several events happening during the next few months.
Why did we do this?
Deciding to undergo a website migration was not an easy decision. WFAN has a small staff (about 4 full-time employees) and the scale of this transition was big. But after hearing from women in our network about issues they had navigating our event listings and experiencing limitations telling stories of women in our network in dynamic, captivating ways, we decided we had to do it.
A few features that we hope our members will appreciate:
Mobile responsiveness: Moving our website to a new platform will allow us to make every page user-friendly across mobile and desktop devices. Whether you’re in the field or at a desk, we hope this website is easier to use!
Creative agility: Our network members are so creative. You’re farmers, advocates, storytellers, artists, poets, and so much more! We wanted a website that would allow us to highlight the beauty of all you create quickly and dynamically.
Improved event listings: The Google Calendar method we use on our main website to list events was very limiting. We want to be able to provide you with accurate, easy to find information. Changing platforms allows us to make this change.
