Beanstalk - Global Women Fresh - with New Board Member: Jacqui Green
Their mission is to change the status quo and leverage the talent of Women in 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.
Our 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.
Beanstalk Global has partnered up with Global Women Fresh to create a unique monthly Broadcast interview series. This to further promote the great work they do, to gain them more members ongoing and additional corporate sponsorship as well as to assist them to make a long-term difference in the Global Fresh Produce sectors.
Next in our series, we meet up with their newest Board Member, Jacqui Green to hear what she is hoping she and the Group can achieve for 2021 onwards.
Jacqui has worked for key Fresh Sector businesses from Commercial Director to CEO level with proven results. Over the last decade, she has led teams to deliver double digit growth, redefined business models and shaped sustainable cultures. She has a growing Non-Executive Director portfolio and is also a qualified transformational coach and mentor. As a member of several trade boards and committees, she has spoken passionately about her views on policy, future consumers, leadership and sustainability. She is very excited to assist Global Women Fresh and their goal to create a real positive difference in the international fresh food sectors.
