With a commitment to build the capacity of women in the regions, the Rural, Regional, Remote Women’s Network of Western Australia (RRR Network) is delighted to announced that it has partnered with the Curtin Business School Executive Education team to develop a range of opportunities for WA women. The first of these being a Regional Leadership Masterclass, to be delivered at the Muresk Institute in Northam in the 10th to 12th October 2018.

The RRR Network knows that the women in Western Australia value learning but that distance and isolation can be a barrier to accessing quality education programs. When the RRR Network launched on online survey focusing on this topic earlier in the year, 81% of respondents stated they were considering undertaking some form of personal or professional development, training or further study, within the next 2 years. And the top 3 areas of learning identified were Leadership, Effective Communication, and Influencing Decision Makers.

The dynamic residential program will be delivered by Professor Julia Richardson, Deputy Head of the School of Management at Curtin University. This two-day Regional Leadership Masterclass has been specifically designed for WA rural and regional women, in consultation with the RRR Network.  The opportunity to deliver the high-calibre program at the Muresk Institute in regional WA has been an added bonus elevate the quality of experiences available regionally.

Participants will also have the chance to hear from well-known agricultural events and PR consultant Esther Jones (nee Price) who will lead a communications workshop, as well as a from a range of recognised regional leaders including Wongan Hills farmer and Chair of Country Arts WA Sue Middleton, MLA Director Erin Gorter, and Northam-based brand and communications strategist Anna Dixon.

RRR Network CEO Jackie Jarvis said “We are really excited to be working with the Curtin Business School and the Muresk Institute, and to have the ability deliver a program in regional WA.    It is clear that WA women want to lead positive change in their industries and their communities. To be able to deliver a Leadership program designed by and for WA regional women is something we think will have a positive impact on regional WA for many years to come.”
