Impossible Foods is launching an initiative honoring ‘pioneering women’ in sustainability and food technology.

The campaign is in collaboration with Vegan Women Summit (VWS) – and aims to highlight female leaders in the industry.

Impossible Foods X Vegan Women Summit

Therefore, Impossible Foods and Vegan Women Summit are seeking nominations for ‘Women Building the Future‘.

The organizers are looking for ‘women leaders around the world whose work makes an impact in the fields of sustainability and agriculture’.

Applications are open until April 30 for nominees aged 13 years old and above. Impossible says it is an ‘inclusive program that encourages nominees of diverse backgrounds, including all women-identifying leaders’.

Moreover, the list of women leaders chosen as Women Building the Future honorees will be announced on June 1.

‘Pioneering women’ in food technology

Bindu Garapaty is the VP of Diversity and Inclusion at Impossible Foods.

She said: “We recognize the collective power in partnering with Vegan Women Summit, and want to highlight the pioneering women in food and technology who are working to save our planet.”

“Too often, women, particularly women of color, and their voices are overlooked and underrepresented in these industries.”

Jennifer Stojkovic, Founder of VWS

Jennifer Stojkovic, Founder of VWS, added: “Whether it’s innovating on food technology solutions, advocating in government, building a climate-focused nonprofit, or leading a sustainable eating initiative at their school, women of all ages and backgrounds are leading the way for a kinder, more sustainable world.

“Too often, women, particularly women of color, and their voices are overlooked and underrepresented in these industries.”

Stojkovic then concluded: “By partnering with the world’s leading plant-based innovator, we’re excited to bring worldwide attention. And, support to these women and help them take their work to the next level.”
