Nominate an inspiring woman in business
June 6, 2012
White Pages® is putting the call out for inspirational ladies to be honoured as part of this year’s Telstra Business Women’s Awards and share in more than $200,000 in cash and prizes.
A major sponsor for the fourth year in a row, White Pages® is celebrating the achievements of women innovating, leading and mentoring the next generation and is urging Australians to nominate now.
Held since 1995, the Telstra Business Women’s Awards have honoured exceptional Australian business women from communities across Australia, inspiring others with their stories of courage and leadership from the coal-face.
Last year’s winner, Catherine Burn, NSW Police’s Deputy Commissioner for Corporate Services, has the task of ensuring the state’s 15,000 police have the capability, resources and capacity to do their jobs. Catherine was recognised for her commitment to customer service and community engagement.
Michelle Sherwood, Executive General Manager Strategic Marketing at Sensis, said White Pages® would continue to sponsor the Community and Government category of the awards, which honours employees in government, statutory bodies and not-for-profit organisations.
“White Pages® has had the opportunity to celebrate many remarkable women through its sponsorship of the Telstra Business Women’s Awards over the past four years,” she said.
“Each year, the finalists in the White Pages® Community and Government Award category have included some of the most talented and inspirational women in Australian workplaces, who have all made important contributions to the community. We are looking forward to rewarding another group of outstanding women at this year’s awards.”
Entries for this year’s awards close at midnight on 19 June. To nominate, head to the Telstra Business Women’s Awards website or call 1800 817 536 between 9am and 7pm AEST Monday to Friday. Check eligibility here.
There are five award categories ranging from those honouring business owners to those honouring employees and government staff. Finalists who win their category at their state/territory awards are then eligible to win the national title in their respective category. Winners of the Telstra Business Women of the Year Award in each state/territory will also be eligible to be named the 2012 Telstra Business Women of the Year.
So who will join billionaire businesswoman Gina Rinehart, Boost Juice founder Janine Allis and kikki.K owner Kristina Karlsson as a Telstra Business Women Award winner this year? Get nominating, and tell us!
