Tarun Richards, Humpty Doo Barramundi

Previous e-Leader, Tarun Richard's story on her involvement with Humpty Doo Barramundi, NT

Tarun Richards, Humpty Doo Barramundi

I never pictured myself as a farmer. I have a business degree in marketing and worked in various Northern Territory Government agencies for over ten years, managing communications, until about five years ago when our third child was born. I was ready for a change, and there was an opportunity for me to become more involved in the farm’s marketing activities, website, and social media.

What do the past E-Leaders have to say?

This is what 2014 E-Leader Ana Pimenta has to say

What do the past E-Leaders have to say?

Ana Pimenta, King Island

Ana is a graduate of the 2014 Women Towards Sustainability E-Leaders Program.  Ana's story started when she came to King Island from Barcelos, Portugal to do work exchange on a local dairy farm.  She expected to stay for just six months. Ana came to King Island and met Tom, who also a shared passion for farming, animals and the environment and they are now happily married with two children.  Their farming enterprise started out with 30 head of cattle and they now run over 1000.  To read Ana's story click here

"Being part of the NRWC E-leaders program was a great learning experience. Not only I learn what a true leader is but I also got to understand myself a lot more and how to improve my relationship and communication with others around me. It was great to get to know all the fellow E-leaders, we were all so different and so similar in many ways. The opportunity to share experiences and opinions with other like minded people was very rewarding. Tuesday nights were always something to look forward!" Ana Pimenta

Campaign to reduce violence against women and their children

Campaign to reduce violence against women and their children

This  morning, Minister Michaelia Cash will launch a campaign to reduce violence against women and their children. The campaign is jointly funded by the Commonwealth, state and territory governments.

As you know, on average, one woman is killed every week at the hands of a current or former partner. One in three women has been a victim of physical or sexual violence, since the age of 15, from someone known to them.
