World cup winning captain to champion women in meatMs Mclean, a highly successful leader in an environment traditionally associated with men, is ideally placed to give an insight into how she has positively worked with other women to prosper in her own field.

The event, the first its kind, will focus on enhancing relationships within the red meat supply chain and developing female talent within the industry, through bringing together a skilled womenís networking group.

Laura Ryan, event organiser and marketing manager for quality schemes at EBLEX, said: "Over the 10 years Iíve spent working in the meat industry Iím always struck by the healthy number of women working in the sector, but how few I actually come into professional contact with. I believe our industry could benefit from a networking group for women operating across the supply chain.

"Following a fantastic response from women in the meat industry echoing my thoughts, I am excited that the inaugural event is now a reality. It will be a great opportunity to listen to an inspiring speaker and network with like-minded business women.Ē
