Reflection, Empowerment, and Co-constructed Research: Leadership Lessons from an Initiative to Transform Iowa Agriculture

Summary

Lisa and the STRIPS team have built long-term, trusting relationships with farmers, farmland owners, agribusinesses, government agencies, and NGOs to test new methods for conserving soil and reducing agricultural runoff into streams and rivers flowing from Iowa into the Mississippi Basin. Having proven their methods and gained local and regional support for them, she is now working with agribusinesses to scale them throughout the Midwest.
