Twelve outstanding women with skills and a vision for agriculture have been selected for the National Farmers’ Federation’s 2020 Diversity in Agriculture Leadership Program. Find out more here.
The Diversity in Agriculture Leadership Program (DiALP) mentoring opportunity is designed for aspiring female leaders, 25 years and over, with a passion for agriculture.
The Program matches successful applicants with a mentor and the mentorship runs from May 2020 to October 2020. With their mentor, each mentee establishes leadership goals, outlines steps to achieving these goals and puts, in place steps to measure progress towards these goals.
The Program is supported by leading agriculture-focussed organisations who have joined with the NFF, in committing to make meaningful change towards gender diversity within the leadership ranks of their industry.

The NFF’s Diversity in Agriculture Leadership Program is building an alumni of skilled female leaders from across the country. The alumni consists of individuals with diverse backgrounds and skills sets, all with one thing in common – a vision for agriculture and a commitment to being a part of the sector’s growth. Graduates of the program have called the experience ‘life changing’.
“Taking part in the program was the professional highlight of my 2019, it was a unique and special opportunity to meet such an inspiring group of women, both the mentees and mentors.”

The relationships developed during the program continue today. “I now have a heightened understanding of my strengths and have a clear plan forward –professionally and personally.”
