Over 220 women from all across the agriculture value chain attended the inaugural Women in Agribusiness event in New Orleans from Sept 16-17th 2012. The speakers’ presentations and the networking opportunities at the event received rave reviews. Here is more information following from the event:
The Women in Agribusiness Summit was created out of a recognized industry need for a forum to address the challenges and opportunities for women in the agribusiness and food sector.
This thought-provoking summit series brings together a powerful group of global leaders in the agribusiness and food production industries to facilitate networking, professional development, and mentoring in a fresh and innovative format. Key women representing many functional areas provide participants with pertinent information about their unique challenges and experiences and enable attendees to intimately engage in conversations that are important to them.
Participants can anticipate a program of collegial discussions in a comfortable setting with women representing myriad roles in companies across the agribusiness and food production value chain. Women in Agribusiness attendees enjoy presentations and discussions with fellow professionals along with “town hall” gatherings that open the floor to casual conversations addressing important peer-to-peer topics. The carefully designed format of this summit series fosters participation from international delegates through substantive and candid discussions on best practices and helping create more productive and positive environments for professional women in agribusiness.
Delegates are able to continue their networking and professional development by participating in the co-located event: Soy & Grain Trade Summit.
