WILD ‘Women in Livestock Development’ on top


We’re celebrating the following promotions made in the last year at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) in honour of International Women’s Day (8 Mar 2015).

From left to right:

Shirley Tarawali (UK), a forage agronomist by training, was appointed assistant director general and remains director of ILRI’s partnerships and communications department.

Isabelle Baltenweck (France), an agricultural economist, was appointed leader of ILRI’s livelihoods, gender and impact program.

Siboniso (Boni) Moyo (Zimbabwe), an animal scientist (breeding and genetics), was appointed the director general’s representative in Ethiopia and leader of ILRI’s animal science for sustainable productivity program.

Patricia Chale (Tanzania), a human resources and organizational development expert, was appointed director of ILRI’s people and organizational development department.

ILRI is proud that fully half of all senior staff who report directly to the director general, Jimmy Smith, are women, and half of all the director general’s second-line reports are also women.

Wishing you a Happy International Women’s Day 8 March 2015
