Interview: New South Wales winner Jo Palmer has her sight set on winning the national title of 2019 AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award in Canberra



With less than six weeks to go until the 2019 AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award recipient is announced, New South Wales winner Jo Palmer, is preparing to head to Canberra next month to see if she can also scoop the national title.
 
Jo is available to talk about her work involving her project - an online platform that facilitates remote work opportunities by connecting businesses all over Australia with talented professionals living in regional, rural and remote regions. She will use her Westpac bursary to create a portal within Pointer’s platform that will help to alleviate road blocks that hold many rurally based professionals back from engaging with remote work.
 
The portal’s resources and training will also educate and support businesses to adopt remote employment. Barriers such as a lack of confidence and understanding of new technology will be addressed through online resources, training and formal certifications for professionals looking to engage in remote work as well as for business owners managing remote employees.
 
Please find attached further information about Jo and the AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award.
