The WE Lead Food Programme 2020 has excellent opportunities for women in the food sector. Designed to equip you with the tools to make that difference and achieve results. The network is open to all discipline backgrounds; research, business, policy, civil society members.
A recent report by McKinsey entitled ‘Women in Food’ has highlighted that while the food sector employs around 49% of women at entry levels, in the upper levels these numbers drop to as low as 9%. The reasons are many and complex, but some key ones identified in the report and through the work of the WE Lead partners are:
- Less women than men feel that entrepreneurial leadership is for them
- Lack of manager support
- Significant systemic commitment to gender and diversity matters within organisations
- Explicit and implicit signalling about privileged leadership stereotypes
- Ineffective, or worse, undermining communications about gender matters
