The Women & Leadership Australia (WLA) have a range of funding opportunities available for women in farming and agriculture. This 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.
End of year funding grants are currently available to women who work in the agriculture sector 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 agriculture industry.
