The Diversity in Agriculture Leadership Program is conducted over five months, with participants embarking on an intensive journey tailored to their needs, providing flexibility, a supportive community, and the tools to elevate their leadership.

Open to 12 participants nationwide, the program provides a unique opportunity for women to clarify their goals and chart their own pathways toward achieving them.

The National Farmers Federation’s goal is to double the number of women in agriculture's leadership ranks by 2030 and create an inclusive industry for all. 

With a proud alumni base of 64 graduates, the program has facilitated transformative change within the industry with many graduates stepping into managerial and executive level roles, accepting board positions, and being changemakers within their communities.

The program includes a three-day leadership retreat in Canberra and mentoring by an established industry leader.
