All-female Emerging Leaders shine mainly in male-dominated agrifood sector

The executive search consultancy has announced its Emerging Leaders program cohort,​which includes Miranda Beebe, lead of Trussell Trust’s Transforming Volunteering strategy; Dr Ruth Bastow, innovation director for CHAP; and Dr Lisa Morgans, head of Livestock for i4Agri.

The program is designed to give future leaders, working in charities in the global food supply chain, access to funding from Eden Search & Select, which can be used to pay for an academic qualification, a vocational course or a research project that will make a genuine difference.

They will also receive mentorship from industry experts who have worked at the top of their field, including retail, the not-for-profit sector and government departments like DEFRA.

Facilitate innovation and transformation

“Congratulations to our program participants; an all-star female line up of future leaders, who each have a clear vision of their future and how they want their careers to progress,”​ said David Macaulay, MD of Eden Search & Select.

“While focusing on different parts of the global food supply chain, Ruth, Miranda and Lisa are united in their passion to facilitate innovation and transformation in the areas in which they work.

“In sectors that remain largely dominated by men, they are already excelling at what they do, but I’m confident that the knowledge and insights on offer from their mentors will prove invaluable as they continue their progression.”

Eden Search & Select’s mission is to plow the global food and farming landscape to unearth high caliber, board-level leadership talent that can deliver sustained, profitable growth. The agency works with entities of all sizes, from rapidly-growing, private equity funded agritech startups to global corporations specializing in fresh, high protein, plant-based manufacturing.
