First Steps is an empowering two-day programme specifically designed for rural women to understand and realise their potential.
It was developed as a result of AWDT’s in-depth research into the role of women in agriculture and the value of their skills and strengths gained in their roles in farming, in their careers, as mothers and in supporting communities.
First Steps is run in rural centres throughout New Zealand. Dates and venues can be found here.
