First networking seminar for women in the meat industry

World Cup-winning England rugby captain Katy McLean MBE will speak at the inaugural networking seminar for women in the meat industry.

The seminar, which will take place on 4 March at the Academy of Medical Sciences in London, will provide attendees with the opportunity to improve networking and enhance relationships in the red meat supply chain. It will also focus on developing female talent within the industry by bringing together a skilled women’s networking group.

Eblex said that McLean, a highly successful leader in an environment traditionally associated with men, is ideally placed to give insight into how she has positively worked with other women to prosper in her own field.

Laura Ryan, event organiser and marketing manager for quality schemes at Eblex, said: “Over the 10 years I’ve spent working in the meat industry, I’m always struck by the healthy number of women working in the sector, but how few I actually come into professional contact with. I believe our industry could benefit from a networking group for women operating across the supply chain.

“Following a fantastic response from women in the meat industry echoing my thoughts, I am excited that the inaugural event is now a reality. It will be a great opportunity to listen to an inspiring speaker and network with like-minded businesswomen.”
