The North Dakota Soybean Council has filled its position of outreach and education coordinator by hiring Shireen Alemadi. The position’s main responsibilities are supporting NDSC in program execution; working with industry partners, producers and consumers on soybean related programs; and helping extend the reach of checkoff resources.
“It’s exciting to add a new role to our staff, as programs expand and demand for soybeans and checkoff-funded programing grows across the state,” says Stephanie Sinner, executive director. “We’re thrilled for the breadth of experience Shireen brings to the team, and we’re delighted to have her as part of our office serving North Dakota soybean farmers.”
Alemadi joins NDSC with extensive experience in managing and running programs, events and activities to strengthen connections and raise awareness. Alemadi’s most recent role was science, technology, engineering and mathematics manager at the North Dakota Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research, where she implemented STEM education programs.
Her career also includes a biosciences faculty position and an assistant director of community outreach and engagement position at Minnesota State University, Moorhead. She has professional experience with teaching and engaging with college and K-12 students.
In 2016, Alemadi was part of United Way of Cass-Clay 35 Under 35 Women’s Leadership Program and was a Fargo Moorhead YWCA Women of the Year nominee. Alemadi has a bachelor’s degree in biology from MSUM and a master’s in biology from University of Central Florida.
North Dakota soybean farmers are represented on the North Dakota Soybean Council Board, which oversees a grassroots promotion, research and marketing program funded by soybean checkoff dollars. The council’s mission is to innovate to expand partnerships, markets and opportunities for the success of the state’s soybean growers.
