President Tanya McLoughlin said she was proud to announce the three female panellists, all of who have been successful in their chosen fields.

“Women had always played a vital role in agriculture, whether it’s on family farms or leading the way in major agricultural enterprises,” Ms McLoughlin said.

“Our three panellists are among those female leaders in a local agricultural sector and are showing innovation in how they produce and deliver products to not just our region but also across Australia and beyond.

“We’re looking forward to having them share their stories and experiences, which in inspire women and girls at the breakfast to pursue their passions with excellence in whatever their chosen fields are.”
