Tradecorp celebrates International Women’s Day

Here at Tradecorp, we believe International Women’s Day is a time to think equal as well as reflect on the progress that has been made by society. In honor of this day, we interviewed four of our extraordinary women to share their insights.The following women we interviewed come from different strategic fields of our company and industry such as; the field, the laboratory, logistics and communication. Along with this, they are also a good representation of the melting pot of different cultures that is Tradecorp, because each of them is from a different country.

Camila Levy – R&D Agronomical Manager

Q.- What does International Women’s Day mean to you?

A.- I have never really thought about it… in the past it was just a day to receive flowers and candy from friends and colleagues! Today I feel that it is a day to remember that women are taking their place in the world by taking care of their families, their team or both! It’s a wonderful time to see the major changes in the rules of society, and there is still more to overcome.

Q.- What role would you like women to play in the agricultural industry?

A.- Women are everywhere in the agricultural industry: the factories, offices, laboratories and the FIELD. More and more I see those wonderful ladies in the field and I feel a lot of love for them! Women are super careful and effective when dealing with plants, and the energy they bring is amazing! I also feel very happy when arriving to congresses and technical meetings and I see feminine faces in the crowd. It’s a “man’s world” but women are arriving, and they won’t stop!

Esther Medrano – R&D Lab Biostimulants Coordinator

Q.- What does International Women’s Day mean to you?

A.- I consider it a day to reflect on the immense effort women have made throughout the years in order to let following generations be where we are right now: a society with much more freedom and equal opportunities.

Q.- What role would you like women to play in the agricultural industry?

A.- After some thought, our own example comes to mind. We make up the majority in our labs! That is something truly special considering that women have always played a minor role in science. However, this has already changed and I’m glad to think we have a voice that’s heard and appreciated in the technology and innovation sectors.

Talia Campos – Marketing & Communication Intern

Q.- What does International Women’s Day mean to you?

A.- International Women’s day is about the opportunity to reduce the inequality that exists worldwide. It is also a chance to recognize just how far women have come in this struggle. We still have a long way to go, but it is important to recognize the achievements we have made in society.

Q.- What role would you like women to play in the agricultural industry?

A.- Women should play a leading role; however, I do not see this differently from other fields. As women gain empowerment, this will happen. All good things require time.

Juliet Widji – Logistics & Customer Service

Q.- What does International Women’s Day mean to you?

A. Ever since I was a child, I heard my mother and aunts talk about Woman’s Day because it is considered very important in my country. Every year in Malabo women wear traditional matching dresses that have “Woman’s Day” written on them. I think that this day is important to recognize and improve our position in the world.

Q.- What role would you like women to play in the agricultural industry?

A.- We have been in this industry for a long time. I think that we have the personality that the industry needs to work in any given department, however in the future I believe we will have higher positions.
