Cattle Australia is urging women in the beef industry to apply for the National Farmers’ Federation’s Diversity in Agriculture Leadership Program.
The program will give 12 women a five-month intensive one-on-one mentoring opportunity. The deadline for applications has been extended until Friday, April 28 2023.
Cattle Australia CEO, Luke Bowen said the beef industry should make a strong showing in the program.
“We have talented leaders across Australia and this program gives women in the beef industry a chance to hone their leadership skills for everyone’s benefit,” Mr Bowen said.
“The contribution women make to the beef business is critical to our industry.
“Our industry has both big opportunities and big challenges ahead and we need our best people to take the lead.
“This program will equip participants with the skills they need to take on more prominent and more senior roles in our industry and help guide our future.
“I congratulate the National Farmers’ Federation for its commitment to this program and for building the professional capacity of the agricultural sector.
“Any women who are considering this program should go for it and put an application in.
“This is a unique and valuable opportunity to learn from some of the best in the business and grow top-level leadership in agriculture.”
