Women in Food and Agriculture round off the year with a Digital Festival

Women in Food and Agriculture will be rounding off the year with a Digital Festival from the 8th to 9th December 2020. This online global event will address how to make a measurable positive impact on gender diversity in food and agriculture, while also inspiring attendees to transform our industry for the better. Over 500 industry professionals have registered and are already using the WFA event platform to network and make new connections across the sector.

The WFA Digital Festival speaker line up is now complete, with some of the world’s leading agri-food companies represented. They include Walmart, PepsiCo, Alltech, BASF, Bayer, Rabobank, Microsoft and more. Over 30 speakers will be sharing their insights, knowledge and industry experience throughout a variety of live sessions, live roundtables and on-demand content.

Over two days the WFA Digital Festival will allow attendees to reflect on what has been a disruption filled year and set out their plans for the year to come, all while making new connections from within the WFA community.

The event has been designed by the industry, for the industry. With the help of our WFA advisory board, the event will feature valuable content for all professionals within the food and agriculture value chain, from large multinational agribusinesses to independent consultants and farmers. One thing all attendees will have in common is the desire and drive to make a positive impact on our industry in terms of strategic change and diversity & inclusion.

Olympia Theocharous, Head of Content for WFA said: “The food and ag sector is tasked with the enormous responsibility of feeding the planet. The WFA Digital Festival will build on the 2019 Summit to bring together the world’s leading agribusinesses and food companies to share insight, challenge, inspire and act on gender diversity.”

“We cannot wait to welcome you to what promises to be a fantastic online experience on 8 & 9 December, to be the change you want to see in the food and agriculture industry.”

Speaking at last year’s summit, Jackie Applegate of Bayer said ‘It’s always inspiring to be together with women leading the way in the food and agricultural industries! Together, with a united voice, we can do so much more for our industry!”

Women in Food & Agriculture unites the prominent players of the industry, creating a community that enables different sectors within the supply chain to learn from each other, build strategic relationships and pinpoint partnership opportunities. It’s not a conversation about men versus women, instead, it focuses on how we can help each other as women in leadership to advance our sector and promote diversity.
