Our 2020 AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award State/Territory Winners and Finalists came together for the third workshop of the 2020 AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award Capacity Building Program; a program that was implemented to add value to the experience of the women involved in the 2020 Awards due to the current situation with COVID-19. The third workshop in the series was focussed on resilience and leadership.
The session was delivered by Rachael Robertson, International Speaker and Author, who was the second woman and youngest person to ever lead an expedition in Antarctica.
AgriFutures Australia’s Belinda Allitt, General Manager, Communications and Capacity Building said the virtual capacity building program was a great opportunity to hear from diverse speakers on a range of important topics.
“COVID-19 has presented us with a unique opportunity to develop a virtual capacity building program where we can hear from outstanding speakers like Rachael. It has also given us the opportunity to work closely with our 2020 AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award cohort to support them in the development of their projects,” said Ms Allitt.
