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

Presented by Westpac and Fairfax Media, the programme highlights the significant contribution women are making to New Zealand’s growth and development, builds the profile of women leaders, and reaffirms the value of bold and diverse thoughts and actions in creating a vibrant present and a bright future for all New Zealanders.
