Showcasing Australia’s Elite Leadership Talent
The State/Territory Awards for Excellence in Women’s Leadership have been created to recognise the contribution of individuals at a State/Territory level to the advancement of gender equality in the 14 year period from 2004 to 2017. More specifically the awards recognise the contributions of individuals that have significantly improved the likelihood of Australian women receiving equitable access to higher levels of leadership.
The underlying purpose of The Australian Award for Excellence in Women’s Leadership is to increase visibility and momentum for the push for Australian women to receive equitable access to higher levels of leadership across all industries and the broader Australian community.
Nominated by members of the WLA community, the award recognises the contribution of an individual in elevating the visibility and importance of Australian women receiving equitable access to higher levels of leadership across all industry and all forms of organisation over the previous 12 months.
