The National Rural Network (NRN) was delighted to attend the launch of Aurivo Leading Ladies on Thursday, the 19th of May 2022, in Co. Sligo. Set up to highlight the importance of gender equality and diversity in the farming community, this dairy discussion group will aim to further empower and provide members with a platform to share knowledge, discuss technical issues and problem-solve topics related to the family farm.
Speaking at the launch of Aurivo Leading Ladies, Stephen Blewitt, Aurivo’s General Manager of Dairy said: “At Aurivo co-op we recognise the essential role that women play in our farming and co-operative community, as shareholders, stakeholders, employees, customers and farmer suppliers and are committed to enhancing diversity and inclusion within all aspects of our business, including inside the farm gate.”
He continued: “We are proud to launch Aurivo Leading Ladies which will provide opportunities for members to grow and develop, as well as upskill, be progressive and sustainable into the future, enabling members not only utilise their strengths in agriculture and dairy farming but also empower them to recognise the value of their voice and opinion.”
