AgriBriefing Launch Pioneering Industry Wide Survey on Women in Food and Agriculture

AgriBriefing’s Women in Food and Agriculture campaign, which promotes the role of women across the agribusiness supply chain, has today announced the launch of the first industry-wide diversity and inclusion survey, supported by Alltech.

Agribusiness and food production are the world’s largest employers, and across the supply chain there is a huge appetite to address the issue of diversity. Agribusinesses are under increasing pressure from consumers, politicians and their own business partners to ensure they are embracing the technology that will revolutionise the sector and building a workforce that has the skills and innovative mindset to utilise it.

Study after study has shown that inclusive workplaces with real diversity across their workforce directly correlate with...

Cargill and Heifer Launch Hatching Hope Global Initiative 

Cargill and Heifer International have joined forces to create The Hatching Hope Global Initiative. The bold initiative aims to improve the nutrition and economic livelihoods of 100 million people by 2030 through the production, promotion and consumption of poultry.

Amy Cornell has strong roots in agriculture. Growing up on a crop farm in Illinois, Amy was ironically allergic to most things—which didn’t foster fondness of the farm in her early years, especially at harvest time. But things changed when she interviewed her father about farming for an assignment while studying at Purdue University.

“That changed my whole career path. Once I had that conversation with him, I decided that even if I wasn’t going to actively farm, I still wanted to help farmers. I realized that growing up on the farm was unique. And that there was just a lot of history—a lot of family history. I actually still have that assignment. I saved it, and I got an A on it.”

Her father’s hard work and passion for farming inspired her to return to her farm roots, and so she went to law school with the intent to...

The Women of Food and Agriculture

From the barn to the boardroom, women play a crucial role in the global business of food and agriculture. Which is why when research showed that women are acutely under-represented in management roles throughout the industry, it seemed imperative to examine and uncover the gender gap—and reveal the incredible stories of the women who work to feed the world.  

Women engaged throughout the supply chain understand the unique challenges of operating in this traditionally male-dominated business. In fact, the food and agriculture industry has been comparatively slow in adapting to changing workforce dynamics.

The case for empowering women in leadership roles is not only built on the foundation of morality and principles of equality, but also by proven economic success bolstered by inclusion and diversity. The World Economic Forum estimates it may take...
