Application close: 13 Apr 2020,
The DiALP is an initiative of the National Farmers’ Federation (NFF), the peak body representing Australia’s farm sector.
The DiALP mentoring opportunity is designed for aspiring female leaders with a passion for agriculture. This program will match mentors (male and female) with successful applicants (mentees). Mentors will be nominated by DiALP partners. The mentorship will run from May 2020 to October 2020. Mentees, with their mentors, will be required to identify their leadership goals and develop a strategy for achieving them or making progressing towards achieving their goals. Mentees and mentors will be required to commit to meaningful, regular communication via telephone, email or video communication such as Skype. One face-to-face meeting during the duration of the mentorship is required.
Who should apply?
Applicants must be female and over 25 years old. The DiALP program is designed for aspiring female leaders who have already made some progress on their leadership journey.

Applicants need not be actively involved in agriculture to apply (whether that be on farm, in agribusiness, farm advocacy or another related field) however, this will be viewed favourably. Applicants MUST demonstrate a desire to demonstrate leadership in the agriculture industry into the future.Act Now
