Applications now open for 2016 RIRDC Rural Women’s Award

Australia’s most prestigious Award for rural women is now open to applications.

The 2016 Rural Industries R&D Corporation (RIRDC) Rural Women’s Award helps boost women’s contributions to primary industries and rural communities by providing financial assistance, mentoring, resources and support for the Award’s state and territory winners.

The Award is open to all women involved in primary industries, who are encouraged to enter themselves or to nominate someone with a commitment and desire to making a real difference to their industry and community.

State and Territory winners receive $10,000 to implement their Award idea and will have the opportunity to participate in leadership development opportunities, including the Company Directors Course run by the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

A national winner and runner-up will be selected from the state winners with a further $10,000 awarded to the winner and $5,000 to the runner-up to support their professional development and contribution to primary industries.…/applications-now-open-for-2016-ri…rirdc-logo
