From Farmer To Consumer – A Discussion On Women In Coffee
Aug 3, 2019 | Auckland, New Zealand | Employment, Economic, and Welfare
Introduction: From farmer to consumer, the global coffee industry has traditionally been dominated by cisgender men. There are fewer places in the world where the gender data gap is bigger than on the coffee farm. In places where coffee is consumed, women hold fewer leadership roles, are paid less than men, are less likely to work as roasters, report higher instances of harassment, and are underrepresented at international competitions such as the World Barista Championship and World Brewers Cup. During this event, four female panelists – a former coffee producer, a coffee importer, a coffee roaster/educator/barista, and a product developer/quality assurance expert – will share their experiences as women within the coffee industry. MC’d by Dr. Robbie Francis (coffee social entrepreneur and human rights expert), the panel will lead a conversation on gender equality and how to ensure the global coffee industry is both inclusive and equal.

Objectives: The Lucy Foundation's goal is to revolutionise the way we do business by creating a culture of inclusivity in trade. To do this, we are helping create an entire supply chain of coffee that is inclusive for people with disabilities across the country of origin (Mexico) and country of consumption (New Zealand).
