Diversity Discussion


NFU Scotland is embarking on research to explore how a wider cross-section of people from across Scotland can get involved with the union and it’s work. 

NFU Scotland board has made diversity and inclusion a key priority for 2024. Caroline Millar, who has just completed three years on the NFU Scotland Board, is leading on a project to undertake research and to present recommendations in the Autumn. NFU Scotland’s Policy Advisor Lucy McGillivray will work alongside Caroline and support the work being undertaken.

Caroline Millar said “It would be great to listen to the views of as many people as possible over the coming months about diversity. The views of NFU Scotland members are a core element, but this project reaches wider than this and we are keen to speak to people who are not NFU Scotland members and people in the wider rural economy about this important topic.” 

The “diversity discussion” will include all types of diversity and will include 

  • Interviews with other agricultural and non-agricultural organisations about their representation on boards and committees and their progress in making their organisation inclusive
  • Analysing existing engagement opportunities across NFU Scotland and levels of diversity
  • A survey aiming to gain the views of both farmers and non-farmers, members and non-members
  • A Diversity Discussion roadshow across Scotland taking place from 8th July for a week where anyone within an interest in this can come along in person and take part in conversations and provide their ideas and feedback 
  • Online meetings to gain views for anyone not able to meet in person
