ON behalf of Emerald Grain, I am thrilled to announce the Women in Australian Agribusiness 100 for 2014.
At Emerald Grain, we are committed to supporting Australia grain growers and the communities they live in.
Highlighting the important role of women in agribusiness – many of whom work in regional communities – is a significant part of this commitment.
When we launched WIAA 100 with Fairfax Agricultural Media back in November, we couldn’t have anticipated a more encouraging response to this initiative.
We have received an overwhelming number of nominations from women representing all walks of life in
Our team at Emerald Grain has been inspired by each nominee’s enthusiasm and passion for agriculture, and I
am excited that we can share these stories with you.
Here you will read about women leading top agribusiness companies, women running farm businesses and women
volunteering for initiatives that improve the lives of people in remote areas – many raising families at the same time.
We also received a large number of entries from young women, in the early stages of their careers who are
gearing up to become the next generation of leaders.
Fairfax Agricultural Media has done a great job of helping
these women tell their stories.
Thank you to all the women who have participated in this
I look forward to seeing this initiative build and grow in the future.
John Murray is the managing director of Emerald Grain
