Nominations for the 2024 NSW Women of the Year Awards open today.
Minister for Women Jodie Harrison said the NSW Government was looking for the most empowering and inspiring women and girls in the state.
“These awards recognise the invaluable contribution to community, industry and society that women in NSW have made through their hard work, dedication and passion. The awards honour our inspirational women with the recognition they truly deserve,” Minister Harrison said.
“We want to continue to empower the next generation of young women to be limitless in delivering positive changes through fortitude in their fields of expertise. We can only achieve this by shining a light on the contributions and achievements of women in our communities.”
The annual awards will put the spotlight on women and girls whose determination, bravery, skill and passion should be celebrated and shared, inspiring others to achieve great things. They celebrate the role models who challenge inequality, innovate and inspire.
The 2024 award categories are:
- Premier’s NSW Woman of Excellence
- NSW Community Hero
- NSW Young Woman of the Year
- NSW Aboriginal Woman of the Year
Nominations are also open to recognise and honour young girls in the Ones to Watch Showcase. It will put the spotlight on the rising stars of our community, showcasing 10 exemplary young girls between the ages of 7-15 years old.
“The Ones to Watch showcase will spotlight the next generation of inspiring young women by recognising the potential, resilience and determination of girls who are shaping the future," Minister Harrison said.
The winners of the awards will be announced at the NSW Women of the Year Awards ceremony on 7 March 2024 as part of NSW Women’s Week 2024. Nominate someone now: https://www.nsw.gov.au/women-nsw/awards-and-events/nsw-women-of-year-awards
