About Us

Today’s women in dairy are multi-talented, capable and influential and we work alongside our members to give them additional skills to be the best they can be both on and off farm.

To do this, the Dairy Women’s Network has a passionate team of volunteers and partners across NZ who are dedicated to our organisation’s purpose to empower farm businesses to thrive with knowledge and connections. 

First and foremost, the Dairy Women’s Network is a kiwi not-for-profit organisation, built on our famous can-do attitude.
Our primary focus is to create occasions for women (and men) to get off farm and connect with others. We do this through a number of ways that have been developed by women in the industry to suit busy lifestyles.

Dairy Women’s Network develop, facilitate and promote events and initiatives for members to acquire industry-based knowledge and soft skills. We have a nation-wide network of members supported by volunteer regional leaders who coordinate activity in your region.

Increasingly, the Network has become an influential industry participant and attracts significant support from leading partners and organisations. This helps us add even more value to our members, so they can add more value to their journey.

Dairy Women’s Network is proud to offer a place of support for everyone, no matter your role in the industry.
