Women Influencing Agribusiness and Regions

Women already play a significant role in South Australian agribusiness. There is enormous potential for us to benefit even more from female industry participation and leadership in the sector.

The Department of Primary Industries and Regions (PIRSA), in partnership with women in industry and the community have developed the Women Influencing Agribusiness and Regions Strategy to exploit these opportunities.

To bring this strategy to life, we engaged women working both in PIRSA and the agribusiness sector.

These talented and committed women are sharing their expertise, insights and leadership to help achieve the outcomes of the strategy. They are passionate about the impact they have through the work they do.

We seek to support and connect with women in agribusiness and regions.
