Women urged to show success
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.
