Our passion

Awarding brilliant women


Telstra is a passionate advocate for women in business, celebrating their achievements through Australia's longest running and most esteemed women's awards program – the Telstra Business Women's Awards. 

For over two decades the Awards have championed women from diverse industries ensuring their achievements become part of the national conversation.

In that time, the business landscape has changed, the world has become smaller and more connected and Telstra's ambitions have evolved to become truly global. That’s why we’ve extended the Awards to also include outstanding business women in Asia who have the passion, courage and determination to challenge the status quo. 

Award winners and finalists join a vibrant Alumni community of like-minded women helping to build stronger, more productive and more relevant business communities in Australia and across Asia. 

The Awards exist because exceptional business women deserve to be celebrated. We invite you to join this celebration – either by nominating yourself or someone you know – to recognise outstanding women in business today and inspire the generation of tomorrow.

Nominations for the Telstra Business Women's Awards can be made all year round.
