Alltech believes that promoting diversity among agricultural leadership is essential for a sustainable future and that supporting organizations such as American National CattleWomen (ANCW) encourages the empowerment of women in the industry. As ANCW is a voice for women who share a passion for the beef community, with a focus on beef promotion, education and legislation, Alltech is proud to partner and support the organization.
“The American National CattleWomen organization aims to educate consumers on the beef industry and the efforts to create sustainable practices that will ensure a safe food supply for years to come,” said Evelyn Greene, president-elect of ANCW. “I’m excited to partner with Alltech, as their vision of Working Together for a Planet of Plenty compliments the mission of ANCW.”
Alltech’s vision for a more sustainable future was announced during ONE: The Alltech Ideas Conference in May. Dr. Mark Lyons, president and CEO of Alltech, called for collaboration across industry sectors and geographical boundaries to create a world in which there is enough nutritious food for all, resources are responsibly managed for future generations and the environment is safe for people, animals and plants.
Taking a significant step toward its sustainability and Planet of Plenty goals, Alltech recently committed to the U.N. Global Compact and nine of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including gender equality. In alignment with these commitments and in support of women in agriculture, Alltech will provide financial sponsorship to aid Greene’s campaign as president of ANCW.
“To see the passion Evelyn has for the beef industry and agriculture is inspiring, and we are proud to partner with and support her and ANCW,” said Randi Walden, Alltech regional marketing specialist. “To work toward Alltech’s mission of creating a Planet of Plenty, we need innovative beef producers and leaders in agriculture driving these efforts, and the ANCW is a group doing just that.”
