Member for Currumbin, Jann Stuckey MP today called for the Currumbin community to celebrate brilliant local business women by nominating them for the 2014 Telstra Business Women’s Awards.

As the longest-running state and national awards program for business women, the Telstra Business Women’s Awards provide an exceptional opportunity to showcase Currumbin’s inspirational business women leaders.

“I urge the community to get behind our local business women by nominating them for the 2014 Telstra Business Women’s Awards,” Ms Stuckey said.

“The Awards recognise business women whose passion, creativity, leadership and success make a positive impact to our community and inspire other women to walk in their footsteps and reach their own goals.

“Twenty years ago the Telstra Business Women’s Awards encouraged women to break through the glass ceiling; today they play an important role in encouraging diversity in business in Australia.”

Winners and finalists across Australia share in a total prize pool of more than $650,000.

The Awards have three qualifying categories for business owners, employees in the private and corporate sector and employees in community and government agencies. Entrants can also be considered for two specialist categories for innovation and young business women.

Nominations can be made at womensawards.com or by calling 1800 817 536. Entries can be submitted from 26 May and close, 14 July.

Winners of the 2014 Telstra Queensland Business Women’s Awards will be named at a gala dinner on 30 September.
