Australian Rural Leadership program

Our Executive officer Lowri Pryce was awarded the opportunity to undertake the Australian Rural Leadership Program.

The ARLP is the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation’s flagship program, and it has been developing leaders for the future of rural and regional Australia for over 20 years.

  OceanWatch’s Executive Officer Lowri Pryce joined thirty leaders representing diverse industries who successfully completed a competitive national selection process, to join course 22 of the ARLP.  The group recently graduated at a Gala event in Perth, following an experiential session in the Kimberley, and five sessions over 17 months.

ARLP participants receive scholarships from a wide range of rural and related industry organisations, philanthropic donors, research bodies, the private sector and the state and federal governments. Lowri’s sponsor was the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation

“I am immensely grateful to the Directors of OceanWatch for the opportunity to take part in the ARLP, and for the substantial sponsorship from the FRDC, which made it possible.   It has been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to focus on myself as a leader.  Now at the end of this program, I reflect that leadership for me is no longer about growing my own skills, but about focusing my attention on aiding the development and skills of others within the industry.”
