Women in Agriculture Leadership

Diamond in the Rough Award


The ‘Diamond in the Rough’ award was created to recognize an outstanding woman in New Mexico agriculture and highlight her efforts and contributions. Initiated by the Women in Agriculture Leadership Conference (WALC) and its various sponsors, the award has been given at each of the previous conferences during a special awards ceremony. Nominations are currently being accepted for those women that, through their actions, strive to make New Mexico’s agricultural industry a prosperous, viable component of the Land of Enchantment. Nomination must be received by April 14, 2017 to be considered.


Also, mark your calendar for "WALCing into the Future" May 30 through June 1st in Las Cruces. Over 150 women from across New Mexico will come together to forge partnerships and develop innovative ideas to propel New Mexico’s agriculture industry forward.
