Communications Group

The Communications arm of the NRWC is a group of volunteer women representing each state and territory to reach, engage and promote the voice of rural women across Australia.

The group strengthens the links with existing rural women’s organisations, networks, individuals, government departments, industry bodies and rural communities in progressing issues affecting women living or working in rural, remote and regional Australia.

The following women represent NRWC in their respective states and bring to you relative information and resources. Their social media activities encourage RRR women to be more confident and speak more loudly in celebrating the achievements of rural women.
