What a fantastic show of support at the official launch of the ABGC’s new Banana Women’s Network at Innisfail last Friday night.
Funded by the Queensland Department of Environment and Heritage Protection, the network was created to recognise the important role women play within the banana industry.
Members of the network will keep in touch via a private Facebook page and will meet about three times a year to share ideas and experiences with like-minded women who understand the industry.
The meetings will feature guest speakers, training and cover any issues identified by the group. To find out more contact Dale Bennett (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Sarah Simpson (email@example.com).
