Pilbara businesswomen are being called upon to showcase their achievements as entries open for the Telstra Western Australian Business Women’s Awards.

The awards recognise a variety of women from a diverse background of industries and aim to honour women for their efforts and talents of operating throughout the Pilbara region.

Telstra group executive and awards ambassador Joe Pollard said the awards, which were now entering the 23rd year, existed because women deserved to be celebrated.

“Every year, we see extraordinary business women challenging the status quo across all industries and from throughout Australia,” she said.

Port Hedland Chamber of Commerce and Industry executive officer Michelle Scott echoed this statement.

Winner of the 2016 Telstra Western Australian Business Woman of the Year, Julie Adams, encouraged women to self-nominate.

Ms Adams said honouring women’s successes helped to change societal opinions around the quantity and quality of women’s achievements.

“It is important for women to be proud and speak about all that they have achieved, both at home and in their careers,” she says.
