Women's innovative approach has forged positive change in the whole world, tenaciously insisting on dreaming and recognition as equals. To celebrate Women's rights, FTS would like to honor the very first Chairwoman of the Commission on Human Rights, Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt, as an inspiration and model to the community.
Following the spirit of this extraordinary woman, FarmTech Society is pleased to announce the newly elected board of directors as a testament to the importance of equal opportunity in the agriculture sector.
Quote Mary Ellis, the chairwoman for FTS: “I am honored and delighted to have been appointed Chairwoman of FarmTech Society at what feels like a tipping point in the CEA sector. I’m totally committed to being a strong advocate for the CEA sector, applying responsible principles of governance and reporting, and to listening, learning, and responding to the needs of FTS stakeholders. It’s an exciting time to be involved in the intersection of technology and agriculture and to see FTS growing at such a phenomenal rate.”
