Growing Character, Health and Income From the Ground Up!
National Women in Ag. Association
National Women In Agriculture Association (NWIAA) was founded and established February 2008, by Ms. Tammy Gray-Steele, who is the Executive Director. The organization is headquartered in Oklahoma City, OK. NWIAA is an agriculture outreach, fueled by sisterhood and diversity. NWIAA believes rural minority women have been often neglected; the lack of resources has stagnated rural development. 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 July 2011. The NWIAA Alabama Chapter was established August 2011.
Some key reasons NWIAA has become the first and fastest growing, non-profit professional agriculture minority organization in America include:
- Embracing a spiritual foundation;
- Investing our best in the socially disadvantaged to help them develop and accomplish their goals in/through agriculture and
- Engaging corporate business women who embody professionalism with a spiritual focus, as we move forward.
NWIAA's motto and pledge to God is always the BEST FOR THE LESS!
