BOARD MEMBER REQUIRED
Global Women Fresh. Their mission is to change the status quo and leverage the talent of Women in Fresh Produce to close the industry’s gender divide by inspiring, connecting and empowering women around the world. And their mission matters more than ever.
Today, women account for 80% of purchasing decisions, but only 20% of the voices guiding decisions in the boardroom. What’s more, is that by 2030 we’ll need the equivalent of two planets to feed a growing world population of 10 billion people – half of them female.
The industry is being called upon to feed the world more humanely, sustainably and efficiently – and more female leadership is a critical part of the answer. Giving more women a seat at the table isn’t just about doing good. It’s about doing good business. By advancing women and achieving gender balance throughout the global supply chain, the industry can reap the rewards that come with gender diversity and inclusivity.
