Tasmanians are urged to consider nominating outstanding local business women for the Telstra Tasmanian Business Women’s Awards.

Now in their 23rd year, the awards not only recognise innovative and exceptional business women, but also help to raise the profile of women in business.

Women who have been recognised in the past come from a diverse range of working backgrounds while sharing in common great success in their fields as well as important contributions to Tasmania’s economy and community.

Anyone can nominate a business woman they admire and business women can nominate themselves, for any of the five Award categories: Entrepreneur Award, For Purpose and Social Enterprise Award, Public Sector and Academia Award, Corporate and Private Award, and Young Business Women’s Award.

Nominations open can be completed online at the website or by calling 1800 816 536.

The Tasmanian Awards will be presented on October 13th with the national awards to follow on December 1st
