Jay Pack Cultivating Our Future Award
Our new Jay Pack Cultivating Our Future Award honors a volunteer who supports attracting talent by sharing their passion and insights for careers in the produce and floral industry. Jay Pack has been an integral part of growing our Career Pathways programs to what they are today. The attract programs are successful because of volunteers, like Jay, who continue to spread awareness about careers in produce and floral. Nominations are being accepted for a volunteer who conducts themselves with integrity, dedication and distinction while advocating for our mission to attract top talent to our industry.
Women's Catalyst Award
As part of our mission we are celebrating and acknowledging outstanding leaders who take an active role in developing industry talent. Our new Women's Catalyst Award recognizes individuals in the produce and floral industry who cultivate women's potential by mentoring and fostering a path for leadership, development and participation. Nominations are being accepted for a man or woman who has demonstrated — through effective mentoring, coaching and influence — the ability to engage and inspire talented women who make a positive impact in the industry.
