Meat Business Women (UK & Ireland) - One to Watch 2020/21

‘One to Watch’ is an annual prize awarded to a female aged 35 or under working within the meat industry in UK & Ireland.

The prize has been established by Meat Business Women to recognise, nurture and support female talent in the meat industry, in order to assist with our objectives to inspire, network and grow the pipeline of women within this sector.

Growing that pipeline of talent will make our industry more attractive to other entrants, especially females. Evidence from McKinsey, Co-op Asset Management and Peterson Institute demonstrates that companies with gender diverse boards achieve superior financial returns, are more resilient to group-think and benefit from women represented at all levels of management.

This prize is for an inspirational female who has already made an incredible impact in her place of work and the winner receives more than just a trophy.

The winner of ‘One to Watch’ will receive a place on ‘Women Leaders’ course at Cranfield University, or an equivalent prize, such as a training, travel or grant opportunity, to a maximum value of £4000. (This would be with the agreement of the Meat Business Women committee).

We are seeking support across the industry for this important initiative by working with your business to identify and nominate deserving individuals.

Additionally, we would very much welcome talented individuals to nominate themselves.
