Abstract: This project is part of the Wincott Development program for women in cotton. This is a project that empowers women in the cotton growing community to better manage difficult times that arise with declining water availability and drought. Skills based training enable communities to be more resilient and help manage challenges such as depression within the rural landscape. With the continuing drought, the need for a skills based workshop to develop resilience and leadership skill in women was identified at the Wincott AGM, at the Cotton Conference in August, 2014. 200 women attended and answered a survey of what they thought was needed in the industry. The need for a more skills based workshop in regional areas was listed as a high priority. In the months since then, the drought has hit home even further in most cotton-growing regions. The Wincott committee felt there was an even stronger need to help boost the resilience, build confidence and encourage leadership skills in the regions.
