Morrisons has re-confirmed its commitment to supporting gender diversity, equality and inclusion in the meat industry by re-signing their partnership with Meat Business Women as strategic partners for 2023/2024.
Women working at Morrisons will gain access to an industry-leading suite of career development tools and mentoring opportunities thanks to the continued strategic partnership with Meat Business Women, the female-led group that attracts, retains and nurtures women in the global meat industry.
As a sponsor and strategic partner, Morrisons will receive priority access to Meat Business Women’s programme of events, networking opportunities and mentorship schemes. It will also provide expertise and input into the group’s strategic direction and support its wider mission of raising the profile of women in the meat industry.
In addition to this support, Lauren Lepley, Group Supply Chain Director at Morrisons confirmed to speak at Meat Business Women’s UK & Ireland conference in London on May, 17.
Andrew Thornber, Manufacturing Director at Morrisons, says: “We are excited to be continuing to work with Meat Business Women for a further year, following our successful partnership in 2021 and 2022. It’s a brilliant opportunity for us to work together to support and showcase our brilliant women in the meat industry within Morrisons, and work to grow our internal talent”.
Laura Ryan, chair of Meat Business Women, says: “We are delighted to continue our work with Morrisons as one of our strategic partners and look forward to working even more closely with their brilliant team. We know from speaking to hundreds of women in the global meat industry that networking and mentoring can make a huge difference to women’s career paths. It’s fantastic that Morrisons is investing proactively in the development of female talent and giving women throughout the business the tools they need to succeed.”
