IWCA Networking Reception

Connecting and empowering women across coffee

Ticketed Event | Saturday, March 9, 12:45-2 pm

The International Women's Coffee Alliance (IWCA) delivers its value by connecting individuals with a shared interest that is relevant industry‐wide: women's empowerment and inclusion is critical to achieving sustainability.

In this spirit, the IWCA fundraising lunch at the 2019 NCA Convention will be an engaging, conversation‐filled forum focused on sharing perspectives on sustainability initiatives.

Moderated by Nathalie Gabbay [representative of RGC Coffee], Victoria Zimmerman of McDonald's and Matthew Daks of NDCP, will share their experience‐based insights, in an approach that encourages all participants to engage. Participants will walk away with new perspectives to inform their own efforts.

All funds raised and insights shared will support the work of the IWCA to empower women in the international coffee community to achieve meaningful and sustainable lives.
