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 with Cheryl Thomas – Executive Director of Global Rights for Women and Nina Patil – Director of Fresh Express / India.
Global Women Fresh partner with Fresh Express to tackle Domestic Violence in our industry – specifically in India. Nina overseas one of the largest Table Grape companies in India. The work & training that both organizations are able to execute in India has been just incredible.
