“With our women in agribusiness initiatives we seek to bring together women in the industry to discuss their unique experiences, sharing challenges and achievements in an effort to advance all women in the sector,” said Joy O’Shaughnessy, event director of the Women in Agribusiness Summit, which is hosted by agribusiness strategic advisory firm HighQuest Partners.
“Recognizing key women who have excelled in this endeavor is our goal in presenting these awards, which we hope will further the mission and exemplify our belief that nurturing women’s advancement is in the best interests of the agribusiness and food industries. Congratulations to all the winners!”
