“Through the CFO Women in Leadership initiative, the CFO board is empowering women in the chicken industry and fostering a diverse and inclusive CFO team,” said board chairman Ed Benjamins.
“We are strengthening and growing the chicken industry by better representing different perspectives and experiences of the communities in which CFO serves. We are stronger together.”
On September 23rd, female farmer-members are invited for an industry tour, which includes vists to theTrillium Hatchery in Stratford and Wallenstein Feed & Supply Ltd.
