‘Victorian rural women are stronger through connection’

The Victorian Rural Women’s Network (VRWN) exists to inspire, resource and empower rural women. The network attends, delivers and promotes key events across Victoria that benefit rural women of all ages and backgrounds.

Whether you are a working woman, young farmer, community advocate or entrepreneur, events held and promoted by the VRWN aim to connect and upskill all rural women so they can lead and influence with confidence.

Keep up to date with the latest events and opportunities by regularly checking the network’s:

  • website for inspiring personal stories, useful resources and access to the Victorian Rural Women’s Leadership and Mentoring Program
  • event calendar for details of upcoming events where you can connect with rural women and potential mentors
  • e-newsletter, an informative quarterly news update including inspirational stories and personal development opportunities
  • Facebook and Twitter pages to enjoy connection and conversation around topics that matter to rural women.

Meet new friends and make new connections at events like the VRWN’s 2018 Rural Women’s Forum. The inaugural forum, held in Creswick in 2018, was attended by more than 100 rural women and included workshops on social media, financial literacy, leadership and wellbeing.

Learn from innovative rural women who have started their own businesses, made a success of their farm, improved their community or stepped up into a leadership role. Feel supported and connected to like-minded individuals who want to see you thrive and succeed.
