The National Women In Agriculture Association (NWIAA) was founded and established in February 2008 by Dr. Tammy Gray-Steele, our Executive Director. The organization is headquartered in Oklahoma City, OK. NWIAA is an agriculture outreach, fueled by sisterhood, need, and diversity. NWIAA believes rural women, especially minority women, have been neglected; the lack of resources has stagnated rural development nationwide. NWIAA is the first minority woman-owned and operated organization that provides innovative outreach education that attracts and sustains current and future generations with its innovative, spiritual, and USDA certified education techniques. The NWIAA Mississippi Chapter was established in July 2011. The NWIAA Alabama Chapter was established in August 2011. Soon, other chapters began springing up all over our great nation!

Great things are achieved when adequate resources are coupled with energy, initiative, and perseverance of women in rural and urban communities.
