Calling all women business leaders

We've come a long way since 1893, but the upper echelons of business remain overwhelmingly male and pale.  

Co.OfWomen, an organisation for entrepreneurial women, is looking to induct three female business leaders into its New Zealand 'hall of fame'.

Anyone can nominate a person, and from these submissions a panel of judges (Dr Lee Mathias, Sarah Paykel, Rhonda Kite,Wynnis Armour, Bronwyn Richardson, Tara Lorigan) will choose the final trio.

Nominees should have achieved significant business success, impacted their industries and also apply their resources 'for good' – more details here.

Give over $5 a month and you will not only be supporting New Zealand innovation, but you’ll also receive a print subscription and a copy of the new book by David Downs and Dr. Michelle Dickinson, No. 8 Recharged (while stocks last).
