I was pleased to join 100 guests last night at a black tie gala dinner hosted by the Hon. Katrina Hodgkinson, Minister for Primary Industries at Parliament House Sydney, to see Danica Leys named the NSW/ACT RIRDC Rural Women’s Award 2012 Winner.
Danica a former agronomist and now a agribusiness lawyer based in Sydney, co-founded the social media platform AgChatOz. She will use her $10,000 winner’s bursary to extend AgChatOz as a key advocacy tool for Australian agriculture.
Hear about Corinne in this 3 minute video. Corinne’s story.
Both women will have the opportunity to participate in the Company Directors Course and Danica will also compete for the national title with the Australian RIRDC Rural Women’s Award winner to be announced on 9th October 2012 at a dinner at the Great Hall, Parliament House Canberra.
We wish both these inspirational women a rewarding future as the year ahead unfolds.
