The Women of Influence Awards

Nominations are now closed

Now in its sixth year, the Women of Influence programme recognises and celebrates women from all walks of life who make a positive difference in the lives of their fellow New Zealanders. Their achievements go beyond success in their personal and professional lives, and their influence benefits their communities too.

Presented by Westpac and Stuff, the programme highlights the significant contribution women are making to New Zealand’s growth and development. It recognises female leaders, and reaffirms the value of bold and diverse thoughts and actions they bring in creating a vibrant present and a bright future for all New Zealanders.
