Are you ready to join a group of inspiring women trailblazing their way through the F&B industry? From farm to fork, women are leading the way and taking groundbreaking steps towards improving the efficiency, sustainability and resilience of the global food chain, Join this important conversation as we overcome some of the industry's biggest challenges and break through that notorious glass ceiling.
Featuring panel discussions with some of the industry's finest female tastemakers as well as a series of dedicated networking sessions, this year's event is for both male and female professionals looking for practical solutions and profitable connections. You can expect to hear from and mingle with a selection of the industry’s brightest minds and many of the key stakeholders striving to build a more sustainable food system.
The F&B industry is in dire need of a shake-up when it comes to leadership diversity. Astonishingly, only 35% of boards in 2020 had representation from historically marginalised groups, compared to an average 47% in the consumer-staples sector. Yet...when it comes to food production and buying decisions, women are the ones in charge. Estimates from the FOA show that women are responsible for 50% of the world's food production and over 80% of food purchasing decisions globally. So why the disconnect between the C-suite and the ground level of the industry?
Countless studies have proven that gender-balanced teams lead to sustainable business practices, increased profitability, and high performance. Simply put, the most gender-diverse businesses are also the most successful. As the evidence continues to mount in favour of gender diversity in the workplace, savvy business leaders are finding ways to boost the representation of women in their organisations. Will you join them in creating a more inclusive (and profitable!) food industry for all?
