Central Australian Focus for Women in Agriculture

Central Australia will be the stage for women in primary industries and the rural sector to share and celebrate their stories at the 2015 Australian Women in Agriculture (AWiA) Conference.
The August Conference in Alice Springs will bring together women from around the country to share knowledge, network and highlight the innovative roles women are playing in agriculture and agribusiness.
Conference organiser and AWiA NT Director Donna Digby said the Conference will be an opportunity to highlight the work being done in the sector by Territory women.
“Women are playing pivotal roles in primary industry and are taking on leadership roles in business, on stations, family farms and in agricultural organisations,” Ms Digby said.
“The AWiA Conference brings together women from around the country to share their stories and learnings, foster connections and help break down barriers of gender and isolation.
“We have a program of dynamic local, national and international speakers and story tellers as well as interactive workshops to encourage new skills and build networks.
“The conference will be a showcase for the Centre, with field trips and a gala ‘Taste of the Territory’ dinner, as well as opportunities to explore the beauty of Central Australia.”
AWiA is the national voice for women working across the agricultural industry, providing networking and opportunities for advocacy, networking, leadership and collaboration.
“If you’re an AWiA member, pastoralist, farmer, industry representative, primary producer, fisher, commercial gardener, agribusiness operator, landcarer, bush harvester, student or a consumer with a passion for Australian produce, this Conference is for you!,” Ms Digby said.
The AWiA 2015 Conference will be held in Alice Springs from August 7-9. The full program will be released in the near future via https://awiaconf2015.wordpress.com/
