Panelist Information: WLI Scholarship Program


Our panelists are comprised of leaders throughout the fresh produce industry that are ambassadors when it comes to supporting, encouraging, and investing in the growth of diversity (specifically with women) within the industry.

Panelists can serve no more than two consecutive cycles to ensure WLI is cultivating a fresh environment for applicants to apply!

Panelists are provided a requirements rubric when reviewing applications allowing them to grade and make award recommendations based off of:

  • Completed eligibility requirement
