Abstract: CRDC recognises that people are the cotton industry’s greatest resource. We continue to invest in the capacity and capability of people through many programs, designed to build a skilled, educated and progressive industry workforce and an industry connected by dynamic networks. We also invest in a range of people programs to build our leadership capacity. Three of the current key focuses include CottonInfo, the industry’s unique joint venture in extension, which is extending key research outcomes to growers; the collaborative implementation of the industry workforce development strategy, which will underpin future workforce programs; and communications, to ensure our stakeholder needs are met. Overall, the goal is to improve the capacity of our growers and the wider industry to attract, retain and develop their people, and to support strong relationships and engagement in research through an interconnected network. Attendance and presentation at the Cotton Industry Workforce Development Strategy and Research Forum enabled the opportunity to workshop with a group of selected, interested people on the final draft of the future Workforce development strategy and future outcomes for cotton education. Additionally, networking with people with invested educational interests from other states and presenting with Mr Gordon Stone on the cotton industry’s education activities and the young cotton professional program.
