As an agricultural business, we recognise the significance of International Women’s Day in promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
It is another opportunity to celebrate the contributions of women in our industry and beyond while also acknowledging the challenges they face daily.
Rachael Willis, the CFO here at Tuckwell tells us;
“I firmly believe that having females in decision making roles is essential to the effective leadership of any business.”
“Equality is an absolute given in my playbook as women should never be seen as any better or any less than a male counterpart, and thankfully my experiences to date have all been equal.”
“I also like to see myself as a role model too – encouraging women to strive to achieve their highest ambitions.”
With only 12% of women (from 2017 statistics) taking CFO roles in the UK, we understand the need for more role models in the business leadership sector. We’re proud to have a diverse team at Tuckwells.
2021 studies from the Cranfield School of Management has found that the proportion of women on the FTSE 100 boards was on the rise, but concluded that the business world still has a long way to go with only 8 out of the top 100 companies featuring a female CEO.
