Category finalists

From farmers to fund managers to fashionistas, finalists in this year’s Fairfax Media and Westpac Women of Influence Awards are drawn from a wide range of fields, but each has one thing in common: they have built on their personal and professional successes to help and inspire others.

Westpac New Zealand GM Consumer Bank & Wealth Simon Power says the Awards are an opportunity to celebrate the nominees’ contributions to improving people’s lives.
“It gives us all a chance to recognise and thank these women for what they do to make New Zealand a better place.”

Award winners will be announced on September 7 at the Awards Dinner at SkyCity Auckland.
