London, September 24th2018 – Challenge Advisory has Amy Wu – Founder & Chief Content Director of From Farms to Incubators to be a speaker at AG 4.0 in San Francisco from 14-15 November 2018.
Ms. Wu will be speaking on the ‘Women in Ag’ panel, a panel especially designed to empower women in the ag industry and to recognise the critical role women play in the agtech sector and innovation overall. Also, the stream will focus on the main challenges women are facing, and how to overcome the gap in agriculture between men and women.
Amy Wu is a veteran journalist with significant international reporting and teaching experience, having worked at Time magazine, the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle, for the USA Today Network; and has written for The New York Times, HuffPost and Wall Street Journal. She spent six years working in Hong Kong, widely reporting within the Asia-Pacific region including Shanghai and Singapore. She earned her master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University, and speaks fluent Mandarin Chinese.
Speaking of Agriculture 4.0, Amy says “When it comes to the marriage of agriculture and technology, women play a critical role especially when it comes to innovation. There remain challenges for women in these fields in terms of the number of women-leaders, but I am confident that with time this will change. Within challenge there lies opportunity”
With the help of the Agricultural Supply Chain, Challenge Advisory have built strong insights into how digitalization can be integrated into US agriculture. The mission for our Agriculture 4.0 workshop is to help farmers better engage with the latest technology available in the market and present a wide range of solutions for the modern farmer.
To address these challenges, we have developed the AG 4.0 workshop, a programme designed around bringing key stakeholders from throughout US agriculture together to tackle the most pressing issues in relation to the stability of the market.
