Women in the Uruguayan dairy

According to the document entitled “Women in the Uruguayan dairy”, prepared by the National Milk Institute (Inale), fewer women than men participate in the dairy workforce in the Uruguayan dairy.
But this gender gap is not exclusive to dairy farms.
The National Gender Plan in Agricultural Policies of the Ministry of Livestock, Agriculture and Fisheries (MGAP) together with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), according to a study by UN Women, indicates that in In rural areas of Uruguay, women have less access to jobs and a lower weekly workload than men.

Despite the context, in Campo Longley there has always been a rule closely monitored by the high levels of the hierarchy, which ensures that we are all capable of acting in any position on the farm without gender gaps.
60% of our direct workforce is women and we believe that in terms of team work, diversity is an advantage because talent has no gender. Different points of view always enrich and diversity is key to that.

We believe in complements. Be it gender, age, education, skills and experiences. And we know, from our own experience, that it is the most productive path for business and for society!
