With results set to be released in July 2013, HighQuest is now looking for industry participants to move forward with researching the current representation of women in agribusiness, their experience in agribusiness, and the most effective strategies for recruiting, retaining and enabling women to thrive and advance within agribusiness.
“Much evidence exists to support the numerous benefits of having a more gender-diverse workplace, including a strong positive link between the proportion of women on executive committees and corporate performance,”
HighQuest unveiled results from a pre-conference survey (http://www.cvent.com/
The new, comprehensive study will be designed to define these parameters further by gathering rich, qualitative data from a representative sample of 150 agribusinesses worldwide. Questions will be answered such as: How many women hold leadership positions? How does women’s representation in agribusiness compare to other business sectors? What is the experience of women in agribusiness and what challenges and concerns do women have?
