About the Speaker
Rachel Stroer serves as the President of The Land Institute, the first woman president to lead the organization in its 45-year history. Stroer has held various roles at The Land Institute since joining in 2015, including Chief Operating Officer and Chief Strategy Officer. Surrounded by a community of scientists and researchers, Stroer is leading the adoption of a bold new strategic vision to reconcile the human economy with Nature’s economy, starting with food. Under her stewardship, The Land Institute is catalyzing an international network of collaborators and advocates—connected across space and deeply rooted in place—to develop diverse, perennial grain agriculture and an ecological future for all.
Rachel completed her bachelor’s at New York University’s Gallatin School where she studied the connections and relationships between humans and the biotic and abiotic ecosphere through performance studies, ethnography, evolutionary biology, and the great books of philosophy upon which our dualistic culture and ideologies were built. She later completed a Master of Business Administration through the Executive MBA program at the Bloch School of Management at the University of Missouri, Kansas City.
