Rural Women's Network
The Rural Women's Network (RWN) is a state-wide government program within the Department of Primary Industries (part of Trade & Investment, Regional Infrastructure and Services).
The RWN works in innovative ways to share information and promote action on rural women's issues, often in partnership with individuals, groups and non-government and government agencies. More about us.
There are several ways you can stay in touch and find out the latest news. See our Updates section for details.
Nominate a friend, family member, colleague, community worker - any rural woman who you believe makes your community a better place.
350 women provide insight into key challenges for rural women.
DPI's Social & Business Resilience Program team is currently running a survey to find out what young farmers, agriculture workers and students need to get into the business of farming.
