Gender equity involves all of us. It affects us in our daily lives and takes on different meaning depending upon our country, our culture, our jobs and our different expression of gender. What does gender equity mean for a coffee family, a roaster or a coffee drinker? How do we relate to and connect with one another around the same passion for coffee?
Join us for an informative, fun and inspiring event to:
Learn how gender inequities impact farming families and communities
Understand how the next generation of farmers could be losing interest in agriculture
Participate in a lively discussion to get to the heart of the issues
Gender in Coffee – A Documentary follows the path of coffee from a smallholder farmer household in Chiapas Mexico into the roasters and cafes where it is enjoyed. An intriguing look into an issue that is taking on more and more prominence in the industry and among consumers.
