Funding for Women's Leadership Development in Farming and Agriculture
My name is Charlotte from Women & Leadership Australia (WLA).
Thank you for taking my call just now and hopefully this comes through to you!
End of year funding grants are currently available to women who work in the farming and agriculturesector to support their participation in a professional development program.
Up to $7,000 scholarships available
The fee support opportunity provides a scholarship of up to $7,000 for women to take part in one of three leadership courses.
The grants have been provisioned for use by women who are working in male-dominated industries, with a specific focus on the farming and agricultureindustry.
How to register
At this stage, Expressions of Interest are being sourced until 7th December via this link: www.wla.edu.au/farmingagriculture The programs are suitable for junior managers right through to executive level women.
We encourage you to inform Boer Goat Breeders Associationmembers and contacts of the opportunity to register, and below is some wording that is appropriate in support of the venture. If required, I can also provide you with an image or logo for your message upon request.
This initiative follows on from the success of WLA’s #100daysforchange campaign, in which more than 200 organisations and individuals pledged a change to increase gender equity in their workplace.
As a result, many women are being provided with opportunities for progression and empowerment. The funding has been specifically allocated on the back of the project’s success, but must be apportioned by the end of 2018.
Do let me know if you have any questions, and thanks to the BGBAAin advance for your support.
