World cup winning captain to champion women in meat
World cup winning rugby captain Katy Mclean MBE will address the importance of teamwork and achievement at the inaugural networking seminar for women in the meat industry.
The event will take place on March 4 at the Academy of Medical Sciences in London and will provide attendees with the chance to improve networking, from abattoir to point of sale.
Ms Mclean, a highly successful leader in an environment traditionally associated with men, is ideally placed to give an insight into how she has positively worked with other women to prosper in her own field.
The event, the first its kind, will focus on enhancing relationships within the red meat supply chain and developing female talent within the industry, through bringing together a skilled women’s networking group.
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 business women.”
