Cornell University has teamed up with IDFA to create the first opportunity for leadership development. The first ever NextGEN Symposium will be held October 6-8, 2014 at Cornell University. The program will feature exposure to the dairy industry from production to processing to supply chain distribution. The program is also designed to enhance personal and professional networks, increase self-awareness, and improve leadership skills in a way that can drive change within an organization.
IDFA has developed a new initiative to engage the next generation of dairy leaders. The NextGEN Dairy Network helps professionals with less than 15 years of experience in the dairy industry connect with industry peers, enhance their careers and prepare for leadership opportunities within their companies and the industry.
The NextGEN Dairy Network provides opportunities for dairy professionals to grow, collaborate, network, solve problems and develop the skills necessary to hold leadership positions in their companies, as well as in IDFA and its constituent organizations.
