Women NSW has declared nominations now open for the NSW Women of the Year Awards.
The Awards, which recognise and celebrate the outstanding contribution made by women across NSW to industry, communities and society, close on 25 October with the winners announced at an awards ceremony in March 2020.
Minister for Women, Bronwyn Taylor said it was important to give the outstanding and inspirational women leading the way throughout NSW, the recognition and acknowledgement they deserve.
“Women from all walks of life make significant contributions to their communities while overcoming gender inequality, raising families, and pursuing careers in male dominated fields,” Mrs Taylor said.
“This is your chance to recognise these women and let them know their hard work does not go unnoticed.”
She said the 2020 Awards would be the ninth year and encouraged the NSW community to send in nominations.
She said information released with the call for nominations identified seven state-wide Award categories:
NSW Premier’s Award for Woman of the Year;
NSW Aboriginal Woman of the Year;
Community Hero Award;
Harvey Norman Young Woman of the Year Award;
Rex Airlines Regional Woman of the Year Award;
NSW Business Woman of the Year Award; and
First State Super Lifetime Achievement Award.
