The program is an opportunity to share and develop knowledge and skills with other like-minded rural women.

The program provides rural women with an opportunity to take part in a reciprocal peer-to-peer style mentoring relationship that will be guided by an experienced facilitator.

The mentoring or ‘buddy' style relationship as guided by the facilitator will assist participants in:
* identifying leadership challenges
* tackling business goals
* developing leadership skills
* career development and progression
* building professional networks, and
* implementing change with support.

Participants will be paired based on alignment of the participant's experience and development goals.

The program will run until November. During this period the mentorship buddies will work together overseen by their facilitator.

Up to eight mentoring partnerships will be established. The expression of interest period will remain open until the program is fully subscribed. The program is managed by Agriculture Victoria.

The Victorian Rural Women's Network welcomes and encourages interest and applications from people from diverse backgrounds, capabilities and experiences.

The first round of applications close 7 February.
