Entries are open for an annual leadership and governance programme for women involved in primary industries or rural communities.
The Agri-Women’s Development Trust (AWDT) 2020 Escalator programme will provide 14 women with coaching, mentoring and support across five modules between February and November.
AWDT founder Lindy Nelson says rural women face a unique set of circumstances and barriers to developing their leadership.
“Their lives often combine supporting a farming business, motherhood, a career and community involvement,” she says.
“Understanding this, and having reviewed existing programmes and international best practice, AWDT designed Escalator with a strong support structure that addresses the issues each individual woman faces when taking her skills to the next level.”
