Everything you need to know
Before you nominate yourself or someone else for the Telstra Business Women's Awards, here are some important things to remember. Explore our Award categories, check your eligibility and find out what our Judges are looking for.
In celebration of women's achievements across all industries and workplaces, the 2019 Telstra Business Women's Awards are recognising outstanding individuals in five different categories. At each State Awards evening, five high-achieving women will become the State Winners for each category, with an overall State Business Woman of the Year also revealed. Then, State Winners will advance to the National Final, where we'll announce each Australian category winner and the Telstra Australian Business Woman of the Year.
The categories are:
For innovative women who are blazing a trail in their own business. This category is for individuals who own at least 25% of a business that's earning less than $5 million in revenue, and which has been operating for at least two years.
For high-achieving and ambitious individuals who define the direction of their business in everything they do, no matter their job title. Corporate leaders and employees in the private and corporate sector where the business earns over $5 million annual revenue, are eligible for this category.
For women who've dedicated themselves to making an impact in education or the public service. Employees of government departments, educational institutions and statutory bodies may enter this category.
This category celebrates leaders and employees of organisations making a positive difference to the world around them, from social missions to environmental change. Women working in not-for-profit and social ventures are eligible.
For the up-and-coming talent of tomorrow. These women are 30 years old or under, and may only just be starting out on their career goals, but they have the capability, commitment and vision to become our future leaders.
To help us recognise only the most deserving talent from Australia, we have a few criteria for all Telstra Business Women's Awards nominees. If you have any questions about these conditions or eligibility, we’re always happy to help. Ask us a question here.
