Ceres, a women in agri-business leadership network, was founded by ten leading female professionals from diverse backgrounds within the Irish sector including academia, consulting and agri-business. The network aims to develop and promote leadership and diverse thinking within the industry and to provide a platform for knowledge sharing, collaboration and peer support. Of the founding members, seven are graduates from the UCD School of Agriculture and Food Science and three are current academic staff of the school. Ceres events are open to everyone with an interest in critical thinking and leadership in Irish agri-business.
The network is named after Ceres, the Roman goddess of agriculture and growth, known as the protector of the land and its products.
