Leadership Victoria

The Victorian Rural Women’s Network (the Network) partners with Leadership Victoria to deliver funded places on two programs: the Williamson Leadership Program and Women’s Leadership Program.

The Network is delighted to double its offering from one to two funded places on the 2021 Williamson Leadership Program.

What is the Williamson Leadership Program?

The Williamson Leadership Program is a highly sought-after program for high achieving leaders with 10-plus years’ experience in the workplace. Participants span a range of fields, age groups, sectors and backgrounds.

The program offers a year of leadership-focused activities designed to develop and connect emerging leaders across sectors and generations.

The Victorian Rural Women’s Leadership and Mentoring Program offers two funded places on the 2021 Williamson Leadership Program to Victorian-based rural  women connected to agriculture or the agriculture supply chain.
