Women of Wheat Spotlight Series: Sonia Scalise - Image

In the flour and milling industry, male voices often dominate. At Ardent Mills, we’re continuing to invest in elevating women’s voices – both inside and outside of our industry – to work toward a future of enhanced diversity, equity and inclusion where the very best talent has a seat at the table.

One key program helping our efforts is Ardent Mills’ Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). Ardent ERGs were established to foster a culture of inclusion and create a work environment where employees feel empowered to share and exchange ideas. The ERG focused on empowering the voices of women at Ardent Mills is “Women of Wheat” (WOW).

Throughout 2024 – and beyond – this content series will showcase the female team members at Ardent Mills who are putting the “wow” in WOW and paving the way for a more inclusive future.

Our May team member spotlight is Sonia Scalise, plant manager, Montreal, Canada.

Sonia’s candor, expertise and obvious passion for what she does are equally contagious and inspiring, and we hope you’ll read on to learn more about how these qualities are helping her break down barriers for women and pave the way for future female leaders in the flour and milling industry.
