Women urged to show suc­cess

Pilbara News - - News -

Busi­ness­women across the Pil­bara and the rest of WA are be­ing en­cour­aged to have their achieve­ments recog­nised on a State level as part of the 2017 Tel­stra Western Aus­tralian Busi­ness Women’s Awards.

The awards, now in their 23rd year, cel­e­brate the lead­er­ship, cre­ativ­ity and vi­sion of women from a range of in­dus­tries and en­sure their suc­cesses are ac­knowl­edged in State and na­tional busi­ness cir­cles.

Port Hed­land Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Michelle Scott said the awards were a good op­por­tu­nity for Pil­bara com­mu­nity mem­bers to spot­light the tal­ents of lo­cal busi­ness­women.

“I would urge our com­mu­nity to get be­hind our lo­cal busi­ness­women and ei­ther nom­i­nate them for the awards or en­cour­age them to en­ter the awards pro­gram,” she said.

“It’s im­por­tant to show­case the achieve­ments that busi­ness­women make to our com­mu­nity and I com­mend Tel­stra for its con­tin­u­ing sup­port of this very worth­while ini­tia­tive.”

Tel­stra group ex­ec­u­tive and awards am­bas­sador Joe Pol­lard said the awards were a prime op­por­tu­nity to recog­nise the ef­fort and abil­ity of busi­ness­women across WA.

“The Tel­stra Busi­ness Women’s Awards ex­ist be­cause ex­cep­tional busi­ness­women de­serve to be cel­e­brated,” she said.

“Ev­ery year we see ex­tra­or­di­nary busi­ness­women chal­leng­ing the sta­tus quo across all in­dus­tries and from through­out Aus­tralia.”

Julie Adams, last year’s Tel­stra Western Aus­tralian busi­ness woman of the year win­ner, en­cour­aged women to ad­ver­tise their suc­cesses and to in­spire oth­ers to do the same by nom­i­nat­ing them­selves.

Nom­i­na­tions can be made on­line and close on Thurs­day, June 15 at mid­night.
