Congratulations to the Winners!
Well done to all involved including 16 women in the ’emerging leader’ categories and another nine who are supporting others as change champions, agenda setters and mentors. Check out the list on the tab above.
We’ve got inspiring entrepreneurs, CEOs and even a Chief Pilot in the mix.
The one thing they all share in common is an extraordinary talent for leadership, and desire to see others succeed.
Please see the event on Facebook to follow the luncheon as it happens, and check out our live blog on the day.

ABOUT THE NAB WOMEN’S AGENDA LEADERSHIP AWARDS
In 2015, the third annual NAB Women’s Agenda Leadership Awards will celebrate the best and most inspiring female talent in business and the community, as well as the men and women who help women achieve.
With nine categories covering emerging and established leadership talent in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors as well as entrepreneurs and business owners, the Awards are an opportunity for Australian women to proudly promote their achievements and contributions.
The Awards recognise accomplishments and work achieved over the 12 months prior to entry, with finalists and winners assessed according to set criteria provided for each category.
We define an emerging leader as a woman of any age who is currently demonstrating her talent and capacity for driving change within her own team and/or organisation. She is on her way to running significant organisations, initiatives and teams, and is fast becoming a prominent and visible leadership star of the future.
Our Awards luncheon is on the 26th February 2015 in Sydney, and will be a celebration of the outstanding female talent available in Australia as well as a fabulous networking opportunity for Women’s Agenda readers who’d like to connect with finalists, winners, judges and like-minded women.

Message from NAB – Key Sponsorship Partner
At NAB, we recognise the importance and influence of women in driving economic and social decisions and we are keen to support women in creating positive change. We provide networks, connections and opportunities to build prosperous communities, where women feel empowered.
That’s why we’re pleased to again partner with Women’s Agenda to celebrate and recognise Australia’s emerging and leading women and the role they play in the community.
The Awards acknowledge and celebrate the extraordinary and unique approach so many talented women make to leadership, innovation and the way they effect change and influence. This is an amazing opportunity to further your leadership development, make a noticeable difference and inspire others.
I encourage women from all walks of life to nominate for the Awards; be courageous, stand up and be recognised for the amazing work that you do.
I look forward to seeing you at the Awards.

Answers to the most commonly asked questions about the NAB Women’s Agenda Leadership Awards. Please contact us if you still have any questions here.
a. As we receive hundreds of nominations, a small working group within Private Media (publisher of Women’s Agenda) will determine our short-list of finalists according to the criteria provided for each award.
b. All finalists are then contacted by Women’s Agenda to let them know they’ve been shortlisted for the Awards, and to verify details provided in their nomination forms. This may involve a short (10 to 15 minute) telephone interview and reference checks.
c. Each award is assigned a panel of external judges. Each of our judges are asked to assess between one and four Awards.
d. The list of finalists is then sent to our external judges for assessment, a group chaired by Women’s Agenda associate publisher Angela Priestley. We ask our judges to inform us of any potential conflicts of interest in the list of finalists they’re provided. Should there be a conflict, the judge will be removed from that award category.
e. Our external judges are asked to independently assess each award according to the set criteria we ask nominees to address.
f. All external judges are invited to participate in a conference call to discuss the winners and assist in delivering a joint verdict.
g. Winners are NOT informed they have won prior to the Awards luncheon. All finalists are invited to prepare a short speech should they be the overall winner on the day.
