About the Telstra Business Women's Awards

The most outstanding women in business aren't just doing things like they've always been. They're redefining how we do business. They're inspiring the talent of tomorrow to follow their lead. They're the architects of our future and the authors of innovation.

At the Telstra Business Women's Awards, we're committed to empowering these women with opportunities to achieve even more.

Because no matter whether you're an entrepreneur, an employee, a charity worker or a volunteer, getting the recognition you've worked for will give you the platform to inspire success in every business you touch.

From discovering the confidence to become a voice of change, to getting exclusive access to a network of like-minded thinkers, the Telstra Business Women's Awards not only support you to reach your potential – they provide the chance to transform business on a greater scale than ever.

A word from our Ambassador

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 pioneers who use their own unique business approach to redefine the status quo both in what they do and how they do it. 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 role models 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
