Australian Rural Leadership Program
The Australian Rural Leadership Program supports individuals who want to respond to regional, rural, and remote Australia’s most complex challenges, as well as the opportunities that arise.
Lead in rural, regional & remote Australia
We envision thriving communities in regional, rural, and remote Australia where people work with one another and the environment around them; respectfully, boldly and intuitively. Become a part of it.
What you’ll take away from the Australian Rural Leadership Program
Each year’s program is tailored to the cohort
The Australian Rural Leadership Program wouldn’t be effective if we delivered the same program every year. The point is that we want to react and adapt to current and relevant problems in our sector. Each year, we take the demographic and objectives of our cohort into consideration, along with the current issues being faced in rural Australia.
This allows us to deliver a highly relevant experience that gives our participants the chance to learn in this real-world context. You’ll gain adaptive leadership skills that support you in confidently overcoming challenges and acting for the greater good.
Activities you’ll engage in
