The Power of People Conference

The International Dairy Foods Association is committed to working with our members and the broader dairy industry to address one of our most critical resources—our people! The future of the dairy industry and our ability to remain globally competitive depends on how we develop the workforce of the future, cultivate the next generation of leaders, and empower and support diversity in leadership roles.

IDFA members are focused on leadership development within their organizations, succession planning, identifying and retaining high potentials, recruitment and retention. That’s why IDFA has developed a new platform to share knowledge, training and networking opportunities pertaining to human resources and building a workforce for the future. IDFA’s People Strategy focuses on ensuring IDFA members have the knowledge, tools and talent to succeed in a more competitive, diverse and inclusive future. A key pillar of this strategy is the Power of People conference.

The Power of People conference is scheduled for Spring 2022 and will deliver programming to Chief Human Resources officers as well as talent and workforce leaders within IDFA member companies. It delivers an interactive program of best practices and suggested strategies in recruitment, training, retention, succession planning, diversity and inclusion, and more. Thought-provoking, forward-thinking and bold, the Power of People conference will examine the trends driving organizations to think and behave differently and offer real solutions for our industry. Attendees will leave the program inspired by the possibility of what they can do with their organizations and feeling empowered as accountable agents of change.
