RIRDC Rural Women's Award 2011 logo

Women living in rural areas with a vision for ways to improve their local industries and communities are being encouraged to nominate for the 2012 RIRDC Rural Women's Award.

The Award is an initiative of the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation and is open to all women involved in primary industries and natural resources.

The aim is to support women with demonstrated leadership capabilities who have the desire and commitment to make an even greater contribution to their local communities by providing them with financial assistance,
mentoring and access to a nation-wide network of business and community leaders.

Applicants are asked to submit a proposal, or vision, that will improve Australia?s rural communities and State and Territory winners will receive a $10,000 financial bursary to implement that vision. The State and
Territory winners and runners up will also have the opportunity to undertake the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) Company Directors Course and be supported with 12 months of facilitated individual strategic leadership support.

Applications for the 2012 Award close 15 October 2011.
