Emerging female leaders who want to create impact, innovate and make a difference to rural and regional Australia are encouraged to apply for the 2020 AgriFutures™ Rural Women’s Award.

The AgriFutures™ Rural Women’s Award is Australia’s leading Award in acknowledging and supporting the essential role women play in rural industries, businesses and communities.

The Award provides a platform to inspire and support Australian women to use and develop their skills to benefit their industries and communities. Each State and Territory winner receives a $10,000 bursary provided by Platinum sponsor Westpac to bring their idea or project to life, as well as access to professional development opportunities and national Alumni networks. They also participate in a separate national process to select the National Rural Women’s Award winner and National runner-up.

If you are interested, you should consider applying, or if you know somebody who should apply, please encourage them to do so.
