Australia’s leading digital publication for professional women, Women’s Agenda, and major sponsor National Australia Bank (NAB)announce the winners of their inaugural Leadership Awards on Thursday 7th March to a sold out audience at Sydney’s Doltone House, Darling Island Wharf Venue.
“This year is the first for our awards and we were thrilled by the high standard and number of nominations received”, said Women’s Agenda Editor, Angela Priestley.
The Leadership Awards recognize a diverse field of women who have been selected as outstanding leaders in their chosen sector across seven award categories.
The judging panel comprised some of Australia’s highly accomplished, current leading women including; Editor in Chief of the Australian Women’s Weekly Helen McCabe, novelist and TV presenter Tara Moss, author, social commentator and newspaper columnist Jane Caro and non-executive director and sustainability advisor Sam Mostyn.
Editor of Madison Magazine Elizabeth Renkert said, “Madison is pleased to be the media partner of the awards. It is important to recognize the women who are helping to shape the future of Australia, something we strive to do each month with our publication. Similarly, the awards are a perfect vehicle for celebrating local examples of inspiration and success”.
The list of award categories was designed to allow as many women from across the nation to be nominated and recognized for their outstanding achievements whether it be as entrepreneurs, or as women in large corporations, educational institutes, charitable organisations and/or community projects.
Wendy McCarthy AO was inducted into the Women’s Agenda Hall of Fame highlighting over 40 years as a teacher, educator, author and change agent in Australian public life.
