Touring Caterpillar's Facility at Convention
Our partner Caterpillar hosted our 2016 convention attendees at the Visitor & Training Center in Clayton, N.C. Caterpillar experts shared about the company’s global operation, the equipment models assembled at the facility — and sought feedback from our members about how they are using Cat equipment on their operation and what could be improved. They also shared about their new Women in Leadership Initiative and how they are empowering women in the company to build a better employee team overall.
Members even had a chance to operate operate Cat excavators and compete in a skid steer rodeo. Safety first, of course!

By Caterpillar Expert Ben Rice

While women have served integral roles on the farm or ranch for centuries, more recently, their contributions within the industry have become better recognized and the positions they hold have evolved.
