Who We Are: Proyecto Mujer Agro
Siete Agromarketing y eComercio Agrario work to achieve a greater share of representation and leadership for women, as the main challenge that this group still has to face within the agri-food sector. A group that constitutes a fundamental pillar for the development and future of the agri-food activity.
In this sense, the achievement of equal opportunities in the rural world and the agri-food sector happens because companies and their managers get involved with this challenge, together with the need for a real incorporation of women to make their activity visible in a sector in the one that is increasing the presence of the feminine sector and the work in parity.

- RED MUJER AGRO- Participation as a partner in all actions of the RED
- AGRO WOMEN FORUM
- IV WOMEN AGRO AWARDS
