At the latter, the faculty members in the Department of Agribusiness, Applied Economics and Agriscience Education presented a poster, “Integrating Gender-Sensitive Participation in Sustainable Intensification and Nutrition Research.” The poster described preliminary findings from their work on a multi-institutional research effort, with the Appropriate Scale Mechanization Consortium (ASMC). The consortium includes the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (lead institution), Kansas State University, Michigan State University and North Carolina A&T State University.

Jefferson-Moore also moderated a conference session on nutrition and gender.
