The Australian Financial Review’s Women of Influence program is committed to increasing the visibility of women’s leadership in Australia, highlighting the important contribution women make in creating a bold and diverse future for Australia.
We want to uncover and promote Australian women who have dedicated their time and energy to help and encourage other women in their industry, and who are fighting for change every day – be it in their workplace, their community or among their peers.
These are women who confront unfairness and don’t take no for an answer; who identify what needs to be done then roll up their sleeves to do it, and who use their skills and ability to help change the status quo to a more equal, more diverse, and vibrant society.
Our new initiative, the Women of Influence Alumni Projects, has been six years in the making. Since 2012, each year we’ve been shining a spotlight on 100 influential Australian women for their amazing contribution to the community and business sectors. While we’ve focused on celebrating these incredible change agents through the 100 Women of Influence Awards, it’s now time to galvanise this community of influencers to make an even bigger impact.
