With support from the Australian Government, WoTL has launched its Regenerate Rural Women Program commencing in April 2023. 

The program acknowledges that women are often the glue that keep families, businesses and communities together during times of disruption. In service to others, and wearing many hats, rural women embody the extraordinary resilience yet often prioritise the needs of others ahead of their own. This program seeks to provide women across South Australia the opportunity to reconnect with their strengths, experiences and core values, to explore new possibilities and opportunities, build confidence, refocus and prioritise themselves.

The program will be delivered across 8 locations in South Australia in 2023 with programs running in the Adelaide Hills, Kingston South East, Kangaroo Island and Lower Eyre Peninsula starting in April – May.

In July, a second round of programs will start on the Yorke Peninsula, Mallee, Murray Plains and Coorong districts.

Each program consists of an introductory zoom, two one-day workshops 4-6 weeks apart and a Zoom group coaching session.

“WoTL is partnering with Tanya Lehmann from Aurora Meliora and Mia Handshin from LeadersHP to deliver the program. Both women bring a strong understanding of the crucial role women play in regional communities and the ability to spark transformative conversations and surface the latent wisdom in a group” said Ms Blenkiron, WoTL Executive Officer.
