Cain Becomes Noble Research Institute's First Director of Strategic Learning and OutreachFri, 12 Nov 2021 09:17:53 CST
Noble Research Institute announced that it has hired Lori Cain as its first director of strategic learning and outreach.
Cain brings more than 15 years of instructional design experience to her new post, specializing in the development of custom learning and training solutions. She comes to Noble from Amazon Business, where she served as its learning and development manager for the last four years.
Noble is designing a new educational system that will transfer knowledge and build skills and confidence to empower farmers, ranchers and landowners to reach their land stewardship and economic goals.
“Lori brings considerable expertise and experience to our skilled team of educators and researchers, who are focused on delivering solutions to producers,” said Steve Rhines, president and CEO of Noble Research Institute. “We want to meet farmers and ranchers wherever they are at on the regenerative journey, ask the right questions and listen. We will learn from these interactions and ultimately provide educational products and guidance that help them build resilience in their operations and address those daily challenges they face.”
As director of strategic learning and outreach, Cain will plan, direct and evaluate Noble’s educational programs for a national audience. Noble’s goal is to assist producers in building successful and profitable ranching enterprises that restore degraded soil health in their grazing lands. This process, in turn, improves their overall operation, helps ranchers leave a land legacy, and creates a healthy environment for the benefit of society as a whole.
“I’m honored and humbled to join an organization with such a great mission and legacy,” Cain said. “I am inspired by the values demonstrated by Noble and the agriculture community. I want to help farmers and ranchers build successful enterprises that leave resources and landscapes better than they found them. And I want to help ranching families chart a regenerative path that best fits their unique circumstances, opportunities and challenges. This is an opportunity to be a part of something greater than any one person, and I’m ready to contribute to this amazing team.”
Noble focuses its soil health activities on grazing and pasture lands, which is the single-largest use of land in the U.S., with about 655 million acres across the contagious United States. These lands enable the nation’s grazing animal production and fuel rural economies. Regenerating these lands will help improve soil health, increase both water availability and quality, mitigate the impacts of both drought and flooding across these expansive lands, enhance wildlife habitat, and sequester atmospheric carbon into the soil.
Cain has a master’s degree in instructional design and technology from the University of North Dakota. She is married to Jamie, her husband of 12 years.
