Wanted - influential female Lions

Fairfax Media and Westpac Bank NZ Ltd have entered into an exciting and innovative partnership to support, promote and celebrate diversity and the invaluable contribution women make to New Zealand. The Women of Influence Awards are about bold, energetic women who are helping shape New Zealand and its future. We’re looking locally, regionally and nationally for women, who are having an impact well beyond their formal roles; that are using their interests and influence to improve the world for others.

The awards will capture a cross-section of influencers in six categories, decided by a panel of judges. The categories include board & management, innovation & science, community service & social enterprise, regional and local influencers, business entrepreneur and emerging leader.

Given that Lions clubs NZ have a network of accomplished women leaders, we would love you to promote this initiative to your members and encourage nominations.

Information about the awards, categories, the judges and latest news, blogs and links to other resources can be found on the Women of Influence section on and Westpac. To nominate yourself or someone you think should be recognised, download an application form. Nominations close 30 August 2013.

You can stay connected with the programme through Facebook, Twitter and the Women of Influence LinkedIn group. Follow @FairfaxMediaNZ and @WestpacNZ for updates, tweet using the hashtag #WOINZ.

Limited tickets are also available for the Women of Influence gala dinner at Sky City on 23 October 2013. To book a corporate table, and get a list of benefits, please email Frances Mahoney  or Bernice Archer for details. Questions and feedback can be directed to Chris Mirams at
