Working together for a sustainable future

The climate conversation is happening, it’s growing. More companies are making sustainable practices a requirement, so why isn’t ag and energy leading this? We are truly what makes the world run, we rely on food and power to survive and we have already started implementing sustainability measures. Farms are increasing cover crops, renewable energy access is growing and so are biofuels and ethanol. These sectors of our industry are committing to be a part of the climate conversation, will you be next? Have you considered the climate conversation? The time to get in is now.

What is the
in-climate summit?

The Indiana Climate Summit is the only gathering of professionals, producers, and government officials involved in midwest's food and energy industries and climate. This event aims to educate, inform, and create a dialogue with the idea of Ag as the Solution. This is an exciting, first-of-its-kind, Second Annual, event, with the goal of using all of the above strategies to develop a practical dialogue on this confusing topic.

The 6 Pillars of the Climate-Agriculture Conversation

  • Carbon Markets and Carbon Sequestration

  • Sustainability and Conservation

  • Renewable Energy and Energy Transition

  • Advanced Biofuels and Renewable Fuels

  • Green Finance and Climate Smart Funding

  • Consumer Pressures and Public Perception


New this year


The WISE is a a borderless membership-based program delivering educational content and career development targeted in the sustainability sectors. We offer exclusive networking benefits for the women on your team leading in this emerging space. This annual program is virtual but includes in-person sessions and meet-ups throughout the year. But, if you’re not able to travel right now, our bi-weekly sessions will be enough to up-level your work in this space. These will be recorded and housed in a platform to play back at your leisure. Members are encouraged to share contact information in the directory. This is not a social media group where you never really meet anyone and relationships are as fake as emojis. That stuff is fluff and not what you need to get ahead to trailblaze forward. This is a legit network that includes applicable real-life training to raise the bar in this industry NOW. This is your Women in Sustainability Experience.

It’s time to make the time. Your company expects results, your industry needs results, and you are a high achiever that craves success. If you’re feeling frustrated or stuck or just know that you’re not quite getting ’this thing to the next level’, you are the right woman for The WISE. 


Sustainability is a topic that has come to the forefront quickly and requires rapid adaptation. This is always challenging, but when it's combined with a myriad of changing (or non-existent!) regulations standards, divisive views not only from customers but even within the leadership team, and new vocabulary to learn daily, the job is one of the toughest out there! This network will provide viable content, training, and peer-to-peer learning to support the individual practitioner and bring up the entire company behind her as she remains ‘in the know.’ 

Who is it for: Women leaders in sustainability that are in a variety of roles who desire networking and content to support their growth in the role and to achieve C.E. (continuing education credits) where applicable, to support their job function. 

Inclusions: Allow us to support your mission of advancing women’s leadership roles in this space by making this YOUR initiative and sponsoring and sending employees to the group. Allow us to do the work to create the content, the network, the speakers, the value, and opportunity. All you need to do is provide a little bit of time and encouragement to team members and allow them to join.

Note: Members of THE WISE network will NOT use the IN-CLIMATE website to register for the luncheon. The Wise membership includes a complimentary ticket to the half-day conference on June 25 followed by the luncheon. 

The WISE is NOT open all year. We are launching the program now, and it will close the week of April 15th. This is not to the time to say 'I'll wait and see.' Take this leap of faith. You, your impact, and your work success are ready to take flight with The Wise. 


The Indiana Climate Summit is the only gathering of professionals, producers, and government officials involved in Indiana's food and energy industries and climate. The 2024 event aimed to educate, inform, and create a dialogue with the idea of Ag as the Solution.
