About the 100 Women of Influence Awards

We are looking for Australia’s 100 Women of Influence

Success in the 100 Women of Influence Awards is not dependent on the seniority or scale of a nominee’s role. Rather, it is about recognising quality and impact. In this way, we hope to encourage the widest possible range of women to show what they are doing and the contribution they make.

Now in its fifth year, the Awards identify and celebrate bold, energetic women who capture the spirit of progress, helping shape a vibrant, inclusive, economic and social future for Australia.

We want you to self nominate, or to nominate a friend or colleague who you think fits the bill.

We want men to nominate too, so they can formally recognise the women they see making a difference.

We are looking for 100 women across 10 categories who, through their achievements and contribution, have had an impact within their relevant category. Learn more about the categories here.

Our Mission

The Australian Financial Review and Westpac 100 Women of Influence Awards is committed to increasing the visibility of women’s leadership in Australia, highlighting the important contribution women make in creating a bold and diverse future for Australia.

We want to uncover and promote Australian women who have dedicated their time and energy to help and encourage other women in their industry, and who are fighting  for change every day – be it in their workplace, their community or among their peers.

These are women who confront unfairness and don’t take no for an answer; who identify what needs to be done then roll up their sleeves to do it, and who use their skills and ability to help change the status quo to a more equal, more diverse, and vibrant society.
