The national voice for Australian dairy farmers

ADIC Legendairy Women’s Breakfast

Australian women’s contribution to the dairy industry was a cause for celebration at the Australian Dairy Industry Council (ADIC) Legendairy Women’s Breakfast on 1 May, 2014.

The ADIC’s Business Breakfast theme shone a spotlight on the many talented, passionate and dedicated women working across the dairy indus-try, acknowledging that Australian dairy would not be the $13 billion farm, manufacturing and export success story it is today, without the con-tribution of women over the course of its history.

Keynote speaker, Founder and Managing Director of Carman’s Fine Foods, Carolyn Creswell presented on her career progression from ‘check-out chick’ to being a multinational business woman, and the importance that work-life balance continues to play in her ability to juggle being a wife, mother and boss day-to-day. Drawing correlations between her experience and those of similar to dairy farming women, Carolyn inspired the breakfast guests to reach out and get involved.

The Breakfast also involved a panel of four women from unique backgrounds in dairy, who discussed the important chapter woman have played in the history of Australian agriculture, and the role they continue to play – often unheralded – in the industry. The ADIC forecasts an increase of women’s participation in the industry, and we are committed to promoting Australian dairy as an attractive career choice through our People and human capacity policy focus area.

This year’s ADIC Business Breakfast will focus on recognising the diverse employment opportunities available through Australian dairy’s value chain and will take place in Melbourne, on 22 April 2015. Stay tuned for more information and to secure your tickets.
