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

Applications are now open for the 2018 AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award, acknowledging and supporting the essential role women play in rural and regional businesses, industries and communities.

The award, formerly the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation (RIRDC) Rural Women’s Award, has been renamed and adapted to align with AgriFutures Australia’s new strategic direction on the changing face of Agriculture, where technology is transforming the sector and successful and impactful leaders are skilled, professional, dynamic, entrepreneurial, commercially savvy and connected. 

John Harvey, AgriFutures Australia Managing Director, is encouraging anyone who wants to create impact, innovate and make a difference or contribute to enhancing the prosperity of rural and regional Australia to apply, and says the Award is open to all women – irrespective of their location.
