Center for Growing Talent and Women’s Fresh Perspectives Leaders Take on Today’s Topics in New Video Series
NEWARK, DE - The recent launch of Center for Growing Talent’s (CGT) short video series is one to watch out for. The series supports the Women’s Fresh Perspectives Portfolio and brings to light a variety of conversations surrounding opportunities and resources for women in the industry, the unique challenges facing women in today’s pandemic landscape, and more.
“Women’s Fresh Perspectives Portfolio is created by women to support women in the industry and, especially in the wake of the pandemic, that work is more urgent than ever,” said Megan Nash, Director of Programs at Center for Growing Talent. “I’m grateful that our volunteer leaders, Brenda and Julie, have joined us to keep the conversation going between our virtual programs to ensure that we’re keeping these important topics on the forefront.”
The conversations, broadcast on Produce Marketing Association (PMA) and CGT social channels, will invite engagement from audiences to share ideas, resources and experiences. The first discussion debuted on February 11 at noon EST and is available for audiences now.
The first in the series, a press release explained, featured conversations with Julie Lucido, CEO and President of Marketing Plus and Outgoing Chair of the Women’s Fresh Perspectives Committee; Brenda Necic, Account Manager at Mastronardi Produce and Incoming Chair of the committee; and CGT’s Megan Nash.
Topics ranged from reflections on the past year, the long-term effects on women in the produce industry, and how COVID has changed the way we see professional development. These topic areas reflected many of the topics from the Listen, Learn Connect Series supporting the Women’s Fresh Perspectives Portfolio that began last year.
“When we couldn’t come together at WFP Conference this year, it was disappointing, but we also had a renewed sense of urgency to make sure we filled that gap with meaningful connections and opportunities for development,” said Nash. “These kinds of conversations are a great sign of that commitment, that while we work through the challenges, we’re continuing to hold ourselves and our colleagues accountable for always enhancing and promoting our industry.”
The other two conversations will appear on the CGT LinkedIn and other social channels. Those interested in joining and learning more about conversations on the Women’s Fresh Perspectives portfolio or the state of talent in the industry in general, are encouraged to follow the Center’s page.
AndNowUKnow looks forward to the future conversations surrounding women and fresh produce.
