To date, the QRRRWN Covid-19 Crisis and Rebuilding Response has included:

  • Initiatives that provide funded education opportunities up to $18,000 this year, to ensure members can continue with development opportunities in difficult financial and economic times.
  • Free education sessions to further business management, business development and recovery strategies. Our Education Program is led by Lisa Duncan.
  • We will shortly launch an 8-part webinar series in partnership with the Royal Flying Doctors Services and Sisters of the North that focuses on wellbeing and ways to respond personally and professionally to current conditions.
  • QRRRWN is also working on launching a business directory for QRRRWN members and other interested businesses to facilitate business networking and support of local business – and of course, one another. This is being led by grazier, Julie Mayne, QRRRWN Board Member, and lead of the Membership portfolio.

We look forward to supporting our members and one another, in so many more ways.

What We Do

Our role is to validate and legitimise the myriad roles of rural, regional and remote women.

QRRRWN Inc. strategic objectives are to develop the capacity of RRR women through education to overcome adversity, develop leadership and participate in decision-making.

QRRRWN Inc. uses its networks to reach RRR women and builds their capacity through:

  • Connecting by creating inclusive safe environments and providing capacity building programs
  • Networking RRR women with individuals, businesses, government and organisations
  • Inspiring RRR women to realise their potential, be influential, contribute and share their stories
  • Fundamental to our purpose is building the capacity of RRR women.

Inspiring Youth in Rural, Regional & Remote Queensland

With the generous support of the Office of Women and the Queensland Government, QRRRWN has been able to inspire and develop young women in rural, regional and remote Queensland for a number of years.  To achieve this, QRRRWN includes a youth program within its annual conference. It is an opportunity for young women attending the Youth Program to engage with mentors who provide:

  • career guidance; and
  • illuminate pathways for their role in rural, regional and remote communities.

Sponsors, Funding & Volunteers

QRRRWN is a not-for-profit. It relies on grants, donations and sponsorship.

Our Youth Program & Mentoring is made possible by the Office of Women and the Queensland Government.

In 2019 and 2020 our Annual Conference and the Strong Women in Leadership Awards are supported by:

  • the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal;
  • Office of Women and the Queensland Government through their support of both the SWLA Awards and bursaries and the Youth Program which is conducted at the conference;
  • Westpac who sponsors the Breakfast and attendance of its keynote speaker; and
  • Panda Pearls generously supports our Annual Conference and SWLA by donating gifts for speakers, prizes for awardees and raffles.

We are also fortunate to have received funding for our programs from a range of other sources including the Financial Planning Association and local sponsors where events are held

Volunteers

Our volunteers are what keeps QRRRWN going. Over many years hundreds of women have volunteered time to support QRRRWN and to lift up other rural, regional and remote women. The work is unpaid and at times it is extremely busy. We thank you for supporting QRRRWN and other rural, regional and remote women.

Wednesday night's Webinar "Building Better Bridges" with BiRRR's Kristy Sparrow left the SWLA nominees partially in awe and in equal parts fired up about taking on those with whom they need to work with to create change. Her candid conversation about becoming more comfortable about Awards and the process involved but also the huge outcomes struck a chord. No question went unanswered - even the challenges about advocating for rural Health and attendees are now trying to find their own hashtags to take on Twitter that are as catchy as #datadrought

Thankyou to all who joined in.
