Empowering Women to Grow Their Careers

The Women's Inclusion Network (WIN) provides mentoring, learning and networking opportunities that empower women to grow their careers with Agrium. We have incredible female employees whose skills contribute to our success every day and this program is a part of our continued commitment to attract and retain strong female talent.

Our Vision 

Agrium strives to create an environment where women are recognized and appreciated for the skills and talents they bring to the business. One of the many ways we do this is by providing our female employees with the tools and opportunities to learn and grow throughout their careers. The WIN inspires managers and leaders to demonstrate and support this vision.
