Announcing the 2020 Telstra Business Women’s Award winners.

We’re honoured to announce this year's winners. Boasting passion, drive and tenacity, these women are not just exceptional pioneers, they’re also role models. They’re redefining the status quo and changing the business world for good.

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

Telstra Business Women’s Awards cancelled.

We’re taking the right precautions to look after you and our people. We’ve sadly made the decision to cancel a number of events, including all 2020 Telstra Business Women’s Awards events and we have made the difficult decision to not proceed with the National Awards.

Celebrating 25 years of progress.

From the women who've led the way in male-dominated industries, to the ones helping other women be heard, we're celebrating their achievements with a thank you from the rest of us.
