Victorian Rural Women’s Network to be re-established!

Date: 3 May 2017

In welcome news, the Victorian state government has announced that is will re-establish the Victorian Rural Women’s Network (VRN). First formed in 1986, the VRN was ‘decommissioned’ in recent years, but will be back in action as of 1 July 2017.

The new network will work with Victoria’s rural women’s groups and individuals to share ideas and information. It will also encourage women to have a more active voice in government and community decision-making.

A dedicated website, social media platform and a regular e-newsletter will keep rural women informed of upcoming events, grants, scholarships, gatherings, activities, publications and resources, and links to other useful services.
