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.

2021 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.  In 2021 QRRRWN will include a youth program within its annual conference again. 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.

2021 Sponsors, Funding & Volunteers

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

Our Youth Program & Mentoring scheduled for the annual conference in 2021 is made possible by the Office of Women and the Queensland Government.

In 2021 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;


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.
