Nominations open for the 2014 Dairy Woman of the Year
award on October 1, Dairy Women's Network and Fonterra say.
The award, in its third year, provides the winner with a
position on the prestigious Women in Leadership Programme run
by Global Women, valued at $25,000. The scholarship is
sponsored by Fonterra Milk Supply.
Dairy Women's Network's Michelle Wilson said the group
celebrated the fact many dairying women earned their stripes
by starting at the frontline of their own businesses and
community organisations and that leadership experience was
attained in many different ways.
The award was a vehicle to support dairy women who wanted to
achieve more in the industry, she said.
Nominations close on November 15. The winner will be
announced at a gala dinner at the Dairy Women's Network
annual conference in March.
