Scoular Women Influencing Culture (SWIC) is Scoular’s inaugural employee resource group. SWIC is focused on harnessing the collective resources of Scoular and its stakeholders to empower and engage our employees in transformative ways, personally and professionally.
SWIC promotes connectivity, creating opportunities for women and their allies to support and collaborate with each other across the organization, converse about the challenges and rewards of being a woman in the industry, and expand networks within and outside the agriculture industry.
I’m grateful to get a lot of support from my mentors within Scoular to become the best version of myself, regardless of gender and race. Having this backbone of support has inspired me to motivate and empower my women colleagues, particularly here in Asia. The SWIC platform allows us to have an opportunity to openly talk and help each other on issues that matter to us as women in this male-dominated industry.
