PROMOTING DIVERSITY AND SHAPING A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

Join us for the inaugural Women in Food & Agriculture summit held on the 3 – 4 December at the NH Grand Hotel, Krasnapolsky, Amsterdam.  

This extraordinary global summit will gather the world’s leading agribusinesses and food companies to share insight, challenge, inspire and act on gender diversity. 

The event will present an unparalleled combination of the cutting-edge techniques, industry insights and practical strategies used by top international leaders to empower their workforce, innovate their businesses and promote agriculture as an employer of choice to the next generation.

From the barn to the boardroom, women play a crucial role in the global business of food and agriculture. Which is why when research showed that women are acutely under-represented in management roles throughout the industry, it seemed imperative to examine and uncover the gender gap and reveal the incredible stories of the women who work to feed the world.
