Simone Cameron, Director of Regions and Projects at NT Farmers, recently graduated from the 2022 National Farmers Federation Diversity in Agriculture Leadership Program.
Simone left the Top End build up for a much cooler climate at Parliament House in Canberra for the graduation celebration!
The Diversity in Agriculture Leadership Program is a flagship program of the NFF. It is designed to increase the representation of women in the leadership ranks of Australian agriculture. The program was developed from the NFF’s goal to double the number of women in agriculture’s leadership ranks by 2030.
The Program matches successful applicants with a mentor to explore leadership goals and strategies.
Mentees come together for a two-day retreat in Canberra at the start of the Program and again at the completion of the Program for graduation. Mentees meet regularly with their mentor and take part in online inspiring speakers webinars throughout the program.
In its fifth year in 2022, the Diversity in Agriculture Leadership Program, boasts an alumni of 41 graduates, who have gone on to pursue high profile and impactful leadership positions and to be change-makers within their community.
The Program is supported by leading agriculture-focused organisations who have joined with the NFF in committing to make meaningful change towards gender diversity in our sector. Partners report annually on their progress on gender equality.
The team at NT Farmers congratulations Simone on her achievement, and acknowledges how lucky we are to have her as a part of our team.
