Tuesday 3rd May 2022, 11:30am – 13:00pm AEST (02:30am GMT)
Meat Business Women Australia will be hosting a free virtual event for members and non-members.
Everything about how, when and where people work has been turned on its head in the past couple of years. Does that mean more opportunity for women in the meat sector? Is now the best possible time for women to speak up about what they want and need in their meat sector careers?
Hosted by Meat Business Women Australia Chair, Catharine Heffernan
Join us at 11:30am (AEST) on Tuesday 3rd May 2022 for a proactive 90-minute online discussion
Who’s on the agenda?
Georgie Somerset, General President of AgForce
- GET HEARD
How to make women’s voices count inside the meat sector, and the role women can play in advocating for the sector across the wider ag industry and beyond.
Georgie will explore what advocacy is, why it matters when you’re busy trying to just get through your day, where women can make the most difference, and why the post-covid environment will provide big opportunities to make change.
Senator Susan McDonald, Chair, Rural and Regional Affairs & Transport Legislation Committee
- GET UP TO SPEED
Knowledge is power. Senator McDonald will provide updates on legislation, policy and personal insights on topics from meat packaging and labelling to encouraging innovation in staffing as the ramifications of a changed global talent pool continue to reverberate.
Dr Jaime Manning, Lecturer in Agriculture at CQUniversity
- GET CHANGE HAPPENING
Jaime will look at what the latest research says about teachers’ perceptions of working in the red meat industry. Can helping teachers think different impact the future of meat sector careers?
