We’ve been honoured by Country Guide with an article in their 2021 December issue!
The author, Angela Lovell, talks about barriers for women in ag, progress in diversity, equity and inclusion, why MWAF’s exists, its co-founders, Marijo Patino and Laura Lazo, and that MWAF works to advance ALL women in the sector. We are not a diversity group but we have embraced diversity in it’s whole extent and work for all women equally including those who are underrepresented, that work on-the farm and off-the farm in the ag and the agri-food and beverage processing, products and services sectors.
FCC sponsorship has been instrumental in our growth. They are also helping us fulfill our potential and expand our role to support organizations.
The article focuses on perceptions about the gender gap, women in the meat sector and the push back.
