AgWomen Global

Strength | Diversity | Ambition | Power

365 days. 365 women. 365 stories of influence!

Overview

AgWomen is a year long project, profiling 365 different women, who've all made an impact in the primary industries, no matter the level of their contribution. We launch with the premise that no longer this theory of 'tall poppy syndrome' is a negative one, rather creates an opportunity to celebrate success and share the stories of those women who help to shape our Industry.

How

We have created an Instagram account (@agwomen), a Facebook page (AgWomen Global) and have built a website (www.agwomenglobal.com) to share the stories of these fabulous women. Each day we will publish a new inspirational story, which we encourage you all to share. In March 2018 we will produce an AgWomen Global coffee table book, which will showcase each women's story, with 12 stories, as chosen by our crowd, extended to feature across two pages within our book. We are also going to include a 'Thank You' page, where every Pledger will be thanked for their help in making this project a success.

We also want to include dynamic content throughout the project, with short video snippets, notes of encouragement, celebrations of success within our community and more. It really is about celebrating these women's contribution, encouraging the next generation to follow in their footsteps and connect a global community of like-minded people who can celebrate their successes together.

Team

There is a great team of women behind this project, and just as many great women taking part. Those who keep the wheels spinning are:

Anna Bailey - Chief Project Manager

Georgie Cox - Chief story writer and Project Coordinator

Chanelle O'Sullivan - Story Scout & Photographer

Tarsh Newport - Book Photographer

Chelsea Millar - Idea generator, Story Scout and PledgeMe campaign manager

Funding

We know a lot of the women nominated are a little shy to tell their stories and some don't think they have one to share. How wrong they are. Every women who touches the industry in any shape or form, influences the direction it takes. From a wife to a mother, to insurer, journalist, media guru, kiwifruit picker, gardener and so many more 'roles.' Every woman who is linked to the industry has a story to tell and we're here to do just that!

To be able to ensure this project is a success we need to be able to pay a contribution to our team for the effort they are putting into collecting, editing and sharing our stories. We also want to ensure we can produce the AgWomen Global book at the end of the campaign to send to each of our featured women, our Platinum pledges and for our crowd to purchase. This means we also need to be able to fund our Photographer to capture those photos which tell 1000 words for our 12 feature stories. 

Simply - if we don't meet our PledgeMe target we can't call this project a success!

Progress

To date we have collected over 100 names and we need at least 265 more. 30 stories have been written, edited and a photo sourced to enable us to launch on 6 March and now we need to write more. To ensure the sustainability of this project for our team, we require support from our crowd.
