Rural Women's Network
Leadership and mentoring opportunities for rural women
The Victorian Rural Women’s Network, together with four partner organisations, are offering funded places for rural Victorian women on a range of established leadership and mentoring programs from 2019 to 2021.
These highly regarded programs are available to rural and regional Victorian women involved in agriculture or the agriculture supply chain. They are tailored for women at all stages of their leadership journey, from emerging to experienced leaders, and include opportunities to begin and boost board experience.
The funded places are part of the Leadership and Mentoring Program which launched at the Rural Women’s Forum in August, 2018.
Re-establishing the Rural Women's Network
On 1 July 2017 the Victorian Government re-established the Victorian Rural Women's Network. The network was first formed in 1986 but lapsed in recent years.

The new network is working with Victoria's rural women's groups and individuals to share ideas and information. It will also encourage women to have a more active voice in government and community decision-making.
Our dedicated website, social media platform and a regular e-newsletter will keep rural women informed of upcoming events, grants, scholarships, gatherings, activities, publications and resources, and links to other useful services.
