Farm Talk radio speaks to Women in Ag director about first-of-its-kind comprehensive women in ag study

BOSTON (10/9/13) -- HighQuest Partners' Joy O'Shaughnessy, director of the company's Women in Agribusiness Summit, was interviewed this week about the results of the company's first-of-its-kind comprehensive study called “The Changing Demographics and Experience of Women in Agribusiness.”

The first phase of the three-part study surveyed 81 companies from throughout the agri-food value chain to provide a baseline of data representing a snapshot of women in the agribusiness and food sectors. The remaining two phases, where participants representing 142 companies were interviewed, examine the attitudes and experiences of women in agribusiness, as well as the existing programs for recruitment, retention and advancement of women in order to provide recommendations for planning gender-inclusion programs.
