QRRRWN History Project

In 2018, QRRRWN is celebrating 25 years of growing women for the future.

We are delighted to announce that we have been successful in our FRRR grant application for funding the “Farming RRR women: Harvesting collective leadership wisdom; growing future women leaders” project. With this funding, QRRRWN will be collating a range of inspiring leadership stories from past and present QRRRWN women.

Dr. Cecily Jensen-Clayton, professional sociologist and QRRRWN’s board lead on membership, will be leading the project. The project is centred on a series of interviews with past and present QRRRWN women, and will feature their stories, wisdom and achievements in a collective video production.

A continuation of the important ongoing work of preserving QRRRWN’s history, the project will draw upon a range of historical material that has been gathered, collated and preserved by QRRRWN members over the last 25 years, in particularly, Judith Bandidt.

The video will be launched at the QRRRWN Conference in Kingaroy, which runs 13-15 September, as part of an exhibit featuring memorabilia from the last 25 years. Dr. Jensen-Clayton will be conducting a workshop at the conference, to begin coalescing information already gathered and stories from women attending conference.

In the lead-up to the conference, we will be sharing highlights from the interviews on this web page.
