Dairy Processing - March/April 2024 - 6

COMMENTARY
Making
room
Every March, we celebrate Women's History Month. It's an
opportunity to take a closer look at all the contributions
women have made, but also reminds us of the long road that
still lies ahead for women in today's society.
This March, I had the opportunity to attend the first ever
International Dairy Foods Association Women's Summit in
Washington, DC. The event welcomed women from across
the dairy industry to participate in leadership workshops,
hear from other women in leadership positions and meet
with lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
When I arrived in DC, I had every intention of just
observing the summit as part of my story about women
in dairy, which you'll find in this issue. However, as I
began meeting the other women in attendance, many of
whom were of similar age and professional stature in their
organizations, I realized that I might get something out of the
event, too. So I quickly went from observing to engaging in
some participatory journalism, taking part in the workshop
elements of the summit and identifying my leadership styles,
strengths, weaknesses and growth opportunities. I soaked
in what the speakers had to offer about their experiences,
rising through the ranks in industries
that weren't always as welcoming
to women. I listened as attendees
asked questions about overcoming
" imposter syndrome " and how to
advocate for themselves, thinking to
myself, " Oh, someone else feels that
way, too? "
But my biggest takeaway was
the idea that if you have a seat at the
table, don't forget to invite others to
join you. And if you want a seat at the table, find the people
who are willing to pull up a chair for you, because there is
absolutely room for all of us.
