NT Rural Women's Award
Zoe Malone has been announced as the winner of this year's Agrifutures NT Rural Women's Award, for her passion about the role volunteers play in creating strong and vibrant communities. The AgriFutures™. Rural Women’s Award is Australia’s leading award acknowledging and supporting the essential role women play in rural industries, businesses and communities. The award provides a platform to inspire and support Australian women to use and develop their skills to benefit their industries and communities.
As the NT winner, Zoe received a $10,000 Westpac bursary to bring to fruition a project working with grassroots organisations to provide tools and information that will empower volunteers and community groups to take charge of their governance.
The two other inspiring NT finalists for 2019 were:
- Donna Digby – Donna proposed to pilot a business development and leadership program to help women in remote Australia become “InvestHER” ready and build leadership and business skills, capabilities and confidence.
- Dr Rebecca Mohr-Bell – Rebecca identified a lack of financial literacy amongst young people working on farms and in regional communities and proposed developing incentives, training packages and other incentives to teach financial literacy skills to young people in a relevant and engaging way.
