Are you a woman involved in primary industries and want to take your ideas to another level?
Did I hear a “Yes?”
Then perhaps the RIRDC Rural Women’s Award could be just the thing for you.
Applications are now open and you have until 15 October to get your application in…or perhaps encourage another woman. We know there are lots of you out there who would welcome a hand up not a hand out.
This award is such a great opportunity to pull your thinking into a plan and the selection process can be a very useful exercise.
The Award provides a $10,000 bursary for each State and Territory winner to provide the resources to develop your vision into a project or initiative that will benefit primary industries and rural Australia.
- formal training in leadership and business management;
- overseas study tours;
- establishing business plans or pilot programs;
- developing education or promotional campaigns;
- networking at forums and conferences to grow your knowledge of industries and markets;
- developing training programs;
- testing information technology initiatives; and
- publishing books.
It’s just a matter of using your imagination to dream big about what you want to do and the future direction of your industry or rural community.
