NOMINATIONS OPEN FOR WOMEN OF THE YEAR AWARDS
Monaro residents are being encouraged to highlight the brilliant women in their personal and professional lives with nominations now open for the 2020 NSW Women of the Year Awards.
Member for Monaro John Barilaro said the Awards were a great opportunity for the community to recognise the hard working women in their lives.
“So many women pour their heart and soul into their careers, families and volunteer work, which in return is strengthening and enriching our community,” Mr Barilaro said.
“Our local women are inspiring role models and it’s time we show them that they are appreciated. I urge all residents to spend a few minutes on a nomination and let the women in their lives know they are valued.”
Minister for Women Bronwyn Taylor said the Awards, which will celebrate their ninth year in 2020, recognise women who have demonstrated excellence in business and society or have made an outstanding contribution to their community.
“I urge everyone to submit a nomination and recognise the many brilliant women who are achieving so much in their fields, and making our communities in NSW stronger, Ms Taylor said.
“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. This is your chance to recognise these women and let them know their hard work does not go unnoticed.”
Women can be nominated in seven award categories: NSW Premier’s Award Woman of the Year, NSW Aboriginal Woman of the Year, Community Hero Award, Rex Airlines Regional Woman of the Year Award, Harvey Normal Young Woman of the Year Award, NSW Business Woman of the Year Award, First State Super Lifetime Achievement Award.
Nominations for 2020 close on Friday 25 October 2019. For further information or to submit a nomination please visit: www.women.nsw.gov.au.
Winners will be announced at an Awards ceremony at the International Convention Centre Sydney on Thursday, 5 March 2020, ahead of International Women’s Day.
