WESTERN Dairy has secured funding to conduct the highly regarded mentoring program DairySage.
Developed by WestVic Dairy and Dairy Australia, the project aims to provide the dairy industry with a sustainable framework to establish mentoring relationships by pairing experienced mentors with individuals from within all sectors of the dairy industry.
Western Dairy president Victor Rodwell said the organisation was looking for mentors and mentees to participate in the program, which starts with a two day workshop on April 10.
"Western Dairy at its recent strategic industry planning day agreed that nurturing and developing future leaders is a real priority for the WA dairy industry," Mr Rodwell said.
"We are hoping our next crop of Western Dairy directors will come from this process
"Western Dairy has three directors who are at the end of their term over the coming two years and so finding quality replacements is critical for us."
