Judges assessed entrants on their ability to demonstrate innovation, vision, leadership and action in their fields, noting that winners have common defining traits: “courage, resilience, positivity, perseverance, agility, intellect and the ability to think outside the square.
“They are change creators not change followers and, above all else, they are visionary. It is an honour to be able to recognise and reward the incredible work these women do nationally and internationally through these awards.”
In its fifth year, the 100 Women of Influence Awards celebrate outstanding women from a wide variety of sectors across Australia. There are 10 categories: Board/Management, Public Policy, Diversity, Business Enterprise, Young Leader, Global, Local/Regional, Innovation, Culture and Social Enterprise.
