Categories this year include Board and Management, Public Policy, Innovation, Business Enterprise, Diversity, Young Leader, Community/Not for profit, Arts & Culture, Rural, and Global.

The programme is committed to increasing the visibility of women’s leadership in New Zealand at a local, regional and national level, and highlighting the important contribution women make in creating a bold and diverse future for New Zealand.

Its goal is uncovering women who have committed 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.

As part of this year’s Awards, the Women of Influence Forum is being held on November 4 at SkyCity where keynotes speakers Raelene Castle, Chief Executive of the Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs and the first female CEO in the NRL, and Sven Hansen, Founder of The Resilience Institute, will share their views on resilience.

Numbers are limited so go to womenofinfluence.co.nz/forum to secure your place at the half day forum.
