Southern Roots is the SEPC’s leadership program for women in produce. The program, chaired by board member Stephanie Hilton of Tom Lange Company, is designed to make meaningful connections among women working in the produce industry through events, education, and mentoring. By sharing values, contributions, and experiences, participants will have an opportunity to improve leadership skills individually and collectively — and will then positively affect organizational effectiveness at all levels. Southern Roots is held at both Southern Exposure and Southern Innovations. If you are interested in becoming involved, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
