"Global Women Fresh, the international network for women in the AGF sector, has launched two new awards to celebrate the role of women in the sector. The Woman of Impact and EmpowerHER Company awards have been conceived to honor the contribution of women and to promote the role of women in the international fruit and vegetable sector," said Linda Carobbi, EU Presidentess Global Women Fresh, expert in the logistics sector.
"The Woman of Impact Award is given to any woman who leads by example, lives with purpose and inspires others to go forward and achieve more in life," said GWF co-founder Julie Escobar.
The EmpowerHER Company Award is aimed at acknowledging a company a company that has pioneered a greater involvement of women in leadership roles during the year.
The award is thus a means of facilitating the integration of women into companies. Examples include membership in the Corporate Board, promotions that lead to leadership positions and the development of training programs for women at the forefront.
