Rural women with advocacy goals for their community, organisation or business are invited to apply for the next National Rural Women’s Coalition (NRWC) e-Leaders program.

Glendale Olives owner Christine Mann, of White Hills, and Jacki Hine, of Burnie, both participated in the 2016 program.

Ms Mann said she learned how to make videos and use social media, but also enjoyed sharing the experience with rural and remote women around Australia.

“It was good to hear what they were doing and their issues,” she said.

This year’s program covers advocacy and influence.

More than 220 women have participated in NRWC e-Leaders programs, president Alwyn Friedersdorff said.

“The technology that we use in our programs enables us to create a learning environment that fosters collaboration and interaction amongst the participants and the presenters,” she said.

Applications open on Monday (March 20) at www.nrwc.com.au and close on March 31.
