Celebrating women who do business differently

In 2020, we celebrate 25 years of the Telstra Business Women’s Awards as we continue to recognise the most outstanding women who are disrupting the way we do business.

For a quarter of a century, the Awards program has recognised outstanding women, helped progress their careers and business ideas, and built a support network of like-minded people to learn, grow and connect with. Read more

Many of the most successful women in business have one thing in common. They are mavericks who use their own unique business approach to redefine the status quo. By undoing traditional approaches to business, they are setting examples to inspire others. Through the Telstra Business Women’s Awards we want to empower more business women, to become mavericks and to thrive in this ever-competitive business world.

Women in leadership, who are transforming the way we do business, deserve to be recognised so I encourage you to nominate an outstanding business woman today, or even better nominate yourself. Read less
