NSW residents have the opportunity to highlight the brilliant women in their personal and professional lives, with nominations now open for the 2020 NSW Women of the Year Awards.

Minister for Women Bronwyn Taylor said the Awards, which will celebrate their ninth year in 2020, recognise women who have demonstrated excellence in business and society or made outstanding contributions to their community.

“It is important to give the outstanding and inspirational women leading the way throughout NSW, the recognition and acknowledgement they deserve,” Mrs. Taylor said.

“Women from all walks of life make significant contributions to their communities while overcoming gender inequality, raising families, and pursuing careers in male-dominated fields. This is your chance to recognise these women and let them know their hard work does not go unnoticed.”
