Here is the Entry videos of the five Finalist 2023-24

Congratulations to Michelle Marais, the first winner of the 2023/2024Women’s Insight Deliberation Competition.

At a gala event held at Villa Arcadia on the Hollard campus in Parktown, Johannesburg Marais elaborated on her passion for creating opportunities for farmers in Africa and stressed that although young people must be enticed to enter the agricultural sector, it remained important that they are made aware of all the realities as well.

The Women’s Insight Deliberation Competition seeks to create a platform for women in agriculture to discuss agricultural issues, and ultimately influence public and industry discourse. It aims to encourage well-thought-out and accurate deliberation of topics relating to agriculture.

Entrants had the opportunity to share their views on any aspect impacting on their lives or careers in agriculture or affecting their rural communities or the environment in general, and to say how they would bring about change.
