Women in farm business workshop - Mareeba

WHERE: Jackaroo Motel, Conference Room - 340 Byrnes Street, Mareeba

In October, QFF is hosting workshops to connect with women in farm businesses. The workshops will look at the range of leadership spaces where women could have an impact and open discussions about the barriers that constrain women from stepping into wider leadership roles and the support or resources that would be useful to help them move ahead in business and beyond.

These workshops are an opportunity for women to pause for a moment, consider their options and aspirations, and plan their next move.

Women from cane, cotton, dairy, horticulture, nursery, chicken meat and other intensive farming industries are encouraged to come along, share their perspectives – and make some plans.

Jess Fealy, Mareeba mango and avocado grower and Queensland finalists in the 2017 Rural Women’s Awards, will talk about the strategies she has used to build her networks and influence, and there will be some other inspiring speakers as well.

These workshops are funded through the Office of Small Business under the Advancing Women in Business program and also supported by Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) and AustSafe Super. The workshops will help QFF prepare recommendations for the best way forward for leadership development for women in Queensland’s agricultural sector.
