The Nationals member for Lowan Hugh Delahunty is encouraging people in the Lowan electorate to nominate an outstanding business woman in western Victoria for an award.
“The Telstra Business Women’s awards provide an opportunity for women who have made a significant contribution to the workforce to receive the accolades they deserve,” Mr Delahunty said.
The 2013 Telstra Business Women’s Awards celebrate successful local business women whose inspiration, determination and innovation is worth celebrating.
“There are many women in western Victoria who have achieved great things in many different business fields and these awards provide an opportunity to acknowledge and congratulate them.”
“Winners and finalists are offered recognition of their achievements, increased business profile, networking and mentoring opportunities, and a share in more than $250,000 in cash and prizes,” Mr Delahunty said.
Awards are open to business owners, women in the private and corporate sector and the government and community sectors. Other awards recognise business innovation and young business women.
The Telstra Business Women’s Awards State and territory winners will be announced at state and territory Awards luncheons and National winners are announced at the Gala Dinner in Melbourne on the 14 November 2013.
“I’m encouraging nominations and entries so that innovative, hard-working, established and emerging business women who inspire other women to reach their own goals can be recognised”, Mr Delahunty said.
Nominations for the Awards can be made at www.telstrabusinesswomensawards.com or by phoning 1800 817 536. Entries are open until 25th June, 2013.
