This is the second time we have offered the award, with the inaugural award won in 2019 by Cathy Hunt, Executive Producer of Women of the World Australia. The award recognises a person who, through their leadership, work or advocacy, is progressing the status of women by either creating new pathways for women, facilitating women’s advancement along existing pathways, or advancing the interests of women through other endeavours in social, community, economic, academic, political or work environments.

The Award provides $5,000 to the winner who will also beoffered a year of collaboration with members of the Zonta Club of Brisbane Inc.

It is open to persons of any gender who are on the path of helping women and who can use the funds to leverage the effect of their work. It seeks nominations from a broad base. For example, the recipient could be an administrator, scientist, teacher, business or industry leader, police officer, community worker, fundraiser or a pioneer in their field.

So start thinking now and get ready to apply when applications open on 5 July from the Zonta Club of Brisbane website.
