The Riverina Agricultural Women (RAW) project was established to provide support and encouragement networks, to build confidence and to develop leadership skills for rural women that can be utilised at family, community and industry levels. There is also the opportunity for women involved to progress past the regional focus to participate in national programs such as RIRDC Rural Women’s Award and Department of Agriculture Fisheries & Forestry Industry Partnerships Corporate Governance for Rural Women.

This report provides an analysis of the project including the initiatives undertaken by RAW and identifies the barriers to further participation of women in training opportunities such as distance, provision of childcare and the culture of their community and industry.
