Women's Groups 2013 - Rural Remote Regional Women’s Network (RRR)

Rural Remote Regional Women’s Network (RRR)

Purpose of the group

To bring together women from rural, remote and regional WA to recognise, promote and expand the contribution they make to their communities.

The group’s key objectives are:

  • • Providing a mechanism for rural, remote and regional women—and rural women's organisations—to share information relevant to developing local communities.
  • • Providing rural, remote and regional women with easy access to government information and programs relevant to regional development and agriculture.
  • • To provide government agencies and other service providers with information on education and training needs for rural, remote and regional women.
  • • Providing a resource for government departments, industry associations, decision-making bodies and local authorities to access rural, remote and regional women.
  • • To provide a link between organisations for the exchange of information and cooperative development of programs relevant to rural, remote and regional women.

RRR Network Reference Group women members are selected from public applications by the Agriculture and Regional Development Ministers. They are chosen for a three-year term and represent a mix of skills, geographical diversity and ethnic origin. Members have extensive networks and awareness of issues that impact on RRR WA women.

Time period

The RRR Network was launched in 1996 and is still active.

Key achievements

The RRR Network has partnered with the Department of Agriculture and Food to present the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation Rural Women’s Awards since 2002. The Rural Women's Awards recognise and encourage rural women and their contribution to agriculture, primary industries, resource development and rural Australia.

The award is open to all women involved in these fields, including broad-acre farming, intensive livestock, cropping, horticulture, fisheries, forestry, natural resource management and related service industries. No formal qualifications are needed to enter.

The RRR Network produces a free quarterly magazine with a circulation of about 9000, widely acclaimed across WA. The magazine includes inspirational stories and reports and contains a wealth of information on ideas, programs, events and activities of interest to women in rural, remote and regional areas.

E-news is distributed fortnightly with information on activities, training events, board and committee positions and grants and award opportunities.
