For immediate release

DairyNZ welcomes funding to develop future leaders


DairyNZ congratulates the Dairy Women’s Network on its successful bid for government funding.

The Associate Minister for Primary Industries, Jo Goodhew, recently announced that a Sustainable Farming Fund grant of $180,000 had been approved for the network’s Project Pathfinder leadership programme.

As a partner of the network, DairyNZ is looking forward to supporting the organisation as it develops future leaders.

DairyNZ strategy and investment portfolio manager Dr Jenny Jago says strong leadership is needed as the dairy industry is faced with more complex issues and significant challenges.

“Women already make a very important contribution to the industry and increasing their leadership skills will allow them to make an even greater contribution that will be highly valued by the dairy industry and the wider community,” says Dr Jago.

“The network has correctly identified that there is a gap between leadership at, for example, the school board of trustee level and the next level up.

“Women want to develop those leadership skills and use them to help grow the dairy industry and support our local communities.

“DairyNZ looks forward to working with the Dairy Women’s Network as it uses the funding to develop programmes to mentor and up-skill the many talented dairying women.”
