Bellimbopinni local Josie Clarke has won the 2022 AgriFutures Australia NSW/ACT Rural Women’s Award for her outstanding work and dedication to improving inclusivity for people living with disabilities in agriculture.
Minister for Agriculture and Western NSW Dugald Saunders MP, and NSW Minister for Women Bronnie Taylor MLC, joined in congratulating Josie yesterday evening, when she was awarded a $15,000 Westpac grant during this special event at NSW Parliament House in Sydney.
This is an outstanding achievement and provides Josie with due recognition for starting the conversation about disability in agriculture and giving a voice to those with disability working, or wanting to gain employment, in the industry.
Josie will use her grant to register her not-for-profit organisation Ability Agriculture to develop support resources, including a podcast series, and scope the development of a leadership program for those living with disability.
Congratulations Josie 👏👏👏
The 2022 AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award is an AgriFutures Australia program, delivered in collaboration with the NSW DPI and supported by the Country Women's Association (CWA) of NSW and Westpac.
