Banner for Cami Ryan

CAAR is pleased to announce Cami Ryan, one of the keynote speakers scheduled to present at the 2021 Virtual CAAR Conference, who will provide insights into the ‘disinformation landscape’ and what this means for the agriculture industry and for societies.


Disinformation is not new to agriculture. The nature of how it is created, shared, and disseminated on social media platforms is new. This brave new world of mass information has created opportunities and challenges for businesses and societies alike.

For product brands, ideas, or campaigns to gain traction on social media platforms, they need to capture attention. This is often accomplished by creating and disseminating compelling information - even disinformation. The problem is that the drivers of this “attention economy” are often not visible.

Join Cami in this 45-minute virtual session as she provides insights into the ‘disinformation landscape’ and what this means for the agriculture industry and for societies. Raising awareness about how the landscape is structured and incentivized may provide a way forward as we continue to face challenges in the industry.
