Event description

Description

Women have a vital role to play in building the profile of agriculture in Tasmania. The sector needs to unite if it is to move towards the aspirational goals of a $10 billion industry by 2050, and it is women – the natural collaborators, decision makers and facilitators – who will help build the bridges between the existing silos and get it to engage at a grassroots level moving forward.

The agricultural industry in Tasmania is proud to have many strong and independent women at its core, but it is lacking a key driver to bring these lynch pins together and empower them to play key roles moving forward, as such the Tasmanian Farmers and Graziers Association aims to hold a pivotal event in 2018 that will be designed to inspire more women to be heard in the industry and give them the tools to better build their farm businesses.

The forum will both inspire and educate these pillars of our farming community, but also provide them a networking opportunity with not only women in similar positions, but the women who are driving some of our national peak bodies that may build on farm knowledge and aspirational goals – effectively opening up our networks to them. We want to promote and recognise their achievements, but also build a sense of ownership in the industry as one that holds great prospects for them, their families and their children.
