TIPA’s In Bloom plans networking events for women in Texas produce

MISSION, TX—Women in Texas produce have a new networking organization, In Bloom. I talked with April Flowers of Lone Star Citrus Growers about In Bloom’s mission, and upcoming events.

In Bloom exists to empower and advance women in produce through sharing opportunities, networking, mentorship, advocacy, professional development, and a supportive environment of women committed to helping each other.

The mission of In Bloom is to “empower and advance women in produce through sharing opportunities, networking, mentorship, advocacy, professional development, and a supportive environment of women committed to helping each other.”

April also told me regular meetings and leadership development workshops planned are a great opportunity for women in the Texas industry to get together outside of the trade show environment. Many women working in the industry may not have an opportunity to attend trade shows, as their roles are outside of buying, sales, or marketing.
