The women selected by the Jury to be the recipients of one of the 15 full scholarships available to participate in the programme will be part of a unique learning experience. Experts in rural development, entrepreneurship and public policy will offer them a first-class educational experience, addressing everything from new technologies to business growth. They will learn about gender equality, sustainability and rural economics, and explore how they can be agents for change in their region.
The sessions will take many different formats to ensure that the programme is stimulating and lively. Participants will listen to expert speakers, join panel discussions, exchange views with mentors and work on projects with their peers.
The speakers for The Women’s Academy for Rural Innovation are listed below, and more will be announced before the programme’s official starting date.
