We are pleased to introduce to you Jasmine Glover, our new Rural Women’s Coordinator (RWC).
Jasmine grew up in the New England Tablelands of New South Wales (NSW). Her grandparents had a beef farm on the mid-North coast and her great grandparents a wheat and sheep property in Ariah Park, NSW. More recently her family has had a small mixed farm near Trentham in Victoria.
After leaving school, Jasmine’s first career was in fashion design for 10+ years where she designed for a number of labels, including Jigsaw. In 2003 she went back to university to complete a Bachelor of Science with Honours at Sydney University majoring in Geography. Jasmine is currently writing up a PhD in Human Geography / Rural Sociology through ANU which focuses on governance of global production networks and ethical trade. Basing her fieldwork in India Jasmine interviewed over 100 farmers in the cut flower industry.
Jasmine has worked for the NSW, ACT and Victorian governments in governance, project management and strategic planning roles. She has always been involved with gender equity, including a role as an elected spokeswoman in the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage.
Jasmine’s strong rural background and her governance experience positions her well to deal with the diverse group of women passionate about the Victorian Rural Women’s Network.
Jasmine is based at the newly opened Victorian Emergency Management Institute at Macedon. You can contact Jasmine by phoning (03) 5460 8609 or by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
