Lane Cove residents are being encouraged to highlight brilliant women in our community, with nominations now open for the 2019 NSW Women of the Year Awards.

State MP, Anthony Roberts, said the Awards “recognise women who have demonstrated excellence in business and society or made outstanding contributions, both personally and professionally.”

“So many Lane Cove women pour their heart and soul into their careers, families and volunteer work, strengthening and enriching our community,” Mr Roberts said.

“I urge all Lane Cove residents to submit a nomination and let the women in their lives know how much they are valued and appreciated.”

Minister for Women Tanya Davies officially opened statewide nominations ahead of the 2019 Women of the Year Awards program, which will be celebrating its eighth year. 

“These Awards are our chance to recognise exceptional women, in Lane Cove and across the State, particularly those who have excelled despite adversity or made contributions that improve the lives of others,” Mrs Davies said.

“Women from all walks of life make outstanding contributions to our communities while overcoming gender inequity to pursue their personal and professional goals.”
