[close] WOMAG is a professional network of women and men promoting gender awareness in the agribusiness industry in Asia. We aspire to build a pool of future leaders who are equipped to address the industry’s challenges and foster diversity in the work place. In parallel with the industry events that we organise to discuss issues relating to agribusiness, we also do a lot of reading! We would love to share our agribusiness and food reading list with you. Of course, we are also very interested in gender equality and how to tackle the social and structural barriers that can prevent women from attaining better representation in leadership roles. There is some great literature on this topic! We would love to hear your comments on the books we've listed here, and any suggestions that you have for others that we should include.

[close] Las ediciones facsimiles de Editorial Maxtor tienen como objetivo acercar al público las obras del pasado de los temas más variados y dar a conocer como escribían, se entretenían, pensaban, aprendían y trabajaban nuestros antepasados. A través de libros que no han llegado a nuestros días por los cauces imperantes sino que han quedado, hasta ahora, relegados al olvido en bibliotecas, podremos conocer un poco más nuestra historia, pero no la que está escrita en las grandes enciclopedias, sino la historia cotidiana, el día a día. Los títulos editados se mueven en la línea del tiempo que va desde el siglo XV hasta principios del siglo pasado. En nuestras EDICIONES FACSÍMILES intentamos respetar el formato y el estilo que caracteriza a los libros antiguos, manteniendo un precio asequible para todos nuestros lectores. -- Facsimiles of Editorial Maxtor aim to bring closer to the people works of the past from various subjects and to show how our ancestors wrote, enjoyed, thought, learned and worked. Through books that have not come to us through the common channels, relegated to oblivion in libraries, we can learn a little more about our history, but not what is written in the major encyclopedias, but everyday history, day by day. Edited titles move in line time from the fifteenth to early last century. In Maxtor´s facsimile editions you can follow the format and style that characterizes old books, maintaining an affordable price to all our readers.
