Meat Business Women announce third networking event
Published:  06 April, 2016

Meat Business Women, the networking group for women working in the UK meat industry, is to host its third event next month in London. 

Sponsored by Meat Trades Journal, the event takes place on Wednesday 25 May at Ironmongers’ Hall.

The event will be joined by one of the UK’s leading adventurers, Bonita Norris, who is the youngest person to reach both the summit of Everest and the North Pole. She went from novice climber to the world’s highest peak in just two years, and has since taken on some of the toughest expeditions possible.

The group has been created to promote enhanced relationships with other links in the supply chain, with three key objectives: to nurture new female entrants in the sector; assist in making our industry attractive to female talent; and skilfully improve networking.

Laura Ryan, event organiser and sector strategy director for AHDB Beef & Lamb, said: “After our last event we received some really encouraging feedback from delegates, and it demonstrated that there is a strong appetite for an outlet like this for women working right across the meat supply chain.

“The previous seminar was focused on opportunity – the opportunity for ensuring women can progress in this field, the opportunity to attract new female talent and the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on retooling the supply chain to ensure it continues to grow. We, therefore, felt a logical follow-on from that was to look at some of the challenges women working in our industry face and how they can harness them to achieve their goals to add value to themselves and the industry in which they work.”
