The International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM) will hold a dynamic Organic Leadership Course in North America in 2013. Participants will gain knowledge, skills and a comprehensive understanding of organic principles and the organic sector in North America and globally while they develop leadership skills and deepen their networks of like-minded people. “With over 150 hours of comprehensive training and intensive skill-building, this course is ideal for preparing managers and staff to be leaders and spokespeople”, said Katherine DiMatteo, the North American regional partner for the course. The program offers a great opportunity for companies to reward dedicated employees or to provide funding for scholarships for deserving participants.
