New Video Series Addresses Challenges for Women in Produce Industry

The series examines issues women have been dealing with during COVID

The Produce Marketing Association’s (PMA) Center for Growing Talent launched a new video series to highlight the challenges of women in the industry and spur discussion among PMA members and others in the industry.

Megan Nash, director of programs at CGT, said the video series came about because of conversations between PMA members surrounding the ways women employees had been affected by the pandemic. The toll of working from home and childcare had been particularly noticed.

“A lot of great conversations were had, and a lot of resources were shared amongst that group,” she said. “We asked, ‘How can we elevate this to share that information out with more women across the industry and share those resources?’ We thought this video series would be a perfect way to be able to share a little of that and further utilize and share with some of the volunteers who have been so committed to the work we do for the women’s portfolio.”
