The Women of Influence Awards 2019 recognize local women who have made a strong impact as leaders, innovators and change-makers in the community. We look to honour women who have made outstanding contributions to their industries or fields through their leadership and entrepreneurship, meaningful accomplishments and achievements, and breaking down barriers or making significant advancements. 

The awards take place in conjunction with International Women’s Day 2019 to recognize leadership and innovation in all its forms and celebrate the strength and diversity of the women in our community.

The awards are open to women of all backgrounds, experiences and industries.

Award Categories

Three nomination categories are available:

  • Young Woman of Influence (under 30 years old)
