WOMEN in Inverell will have access to a suite of courses to boost their leadership skills, modernise their businesses and achieve personal growth, thanks to a $20,000 NSW Government Investing In Women grant.
Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall announced the funding in Inverell today and met with program co-ordinators of the ‘W Project’, an initiative which is expected to help hundreds of local women achieve their personal goals.
Mr Marshall said the W Project would involve five different workshops which will focus on time management, digital marketing, web development, leadership and strengthening local economies.
“These workshops have been designed in direct collaboration with female small business leaders and the Inverell Chamber of Commerce and will be delivered by local experts in each field,” he said.
“Women have consistently proven the most engaged with Inverell’s prior mentorship programs and the W Project will capitalise on that enthusiasm with targeted workshops to help them make the most of life, leadership and business.
“The Inverell economy is strong and diverse, surging ahead in recent years, underpinned by a growing population and investment in community infrastructure.
“This funding will help women in the Inverell district make the most of that potential – giving them improved skills to turn their insight and ideas into a successful business opportunity.
“It’s great to see local women taking an ever stronger interest in business management and this program will pay dividends to the community as a whole, through increased business efficiency, economic growth and social equality.”
