AgriFutures Australia invests in people

Skilled leadership is one of the most crucial elements in the health and prosperity of any rural industry. Our dedication to fostering these important skills was showcased in our pledge to support women in the agricultural sector develop their leadership skills as part of the Diversity in Agriculture Leadership Program. 

Our commitment to up-skilling people was again highlighted at the Poultry Information Exchange industry event where we announced Ashlee Morgan as the
winner of the inaugural Gary Sansom Scholarship. We need to invest in people like Ashlee to ensure we are building the capability of our future rural leaders. 

We are excited to offer opportunities which invest in our stakeholder’s skills and passion for rural industries and we encourage you to keep an eye out for future opportunities by following our
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn accounts.
