Women own around 20% of land globally, but in Scotland, the situation is even more skewed. For example, only 7% of farms in Scotland are owned by women or have women as the principle farmer.
By its very nature, community ownership is gender balanced. What can Scotland learn from this and what can we do to support women in the sector who continue to report that they are taken less seriously than their male counterparts?
Join us as we explore these issues.
Speakers and presenters include:
Angela Williams, Chief Officer, Fort Augustus and Glenmoriston Community Company
Amanda Bryan, Chair, Crown Estate Scotland
Professor Sally Shortall, Duke of Northumberland Professor of Rural Economy, Newcastle University
