Role models recognised
MORE WA women will join Kylie Forth and Tenille Bentley in the WA Women’s Hall of Fame on International Women’s Day.
Nominations for the Hall of Fame that already acknowledges 126 West Australian women close this Friday and new inductees will be named on March 8.
Ms Forth, who won her first gold medal as skipper at the 2014 Blind World Sailing Championships, was inducted into the Hall of Fame last year.
“I thought halls of fame were for people who had achieved a lot or were at the end of their life, so I was surprised to be included,” she said.
“I didn’t think I’d done enough.”
Ms Forth said she recognised her mum and former coach Rachael Cox as female role models in her life.
Global Good Foundation founder Tenille Bentley also joined the Hall of Fame last year.
definitely very humbling and inspiring getting to see other inspiring women,” Ms Bentley said.
She set up Socialite Media in 2010 and recently launched Digital Consciousness that involves working with humanity organisations internationally to use media for greater good.
Ms Bentley is on various boards and said her role models could change daily and be anyone from a truck driver to a business owner, “someone who says one sentence I need to hear at that time”.
