Nominate inspiring women who energise Isaac

Isaac residents are being encouraged to celebrate local women who empower them, energise them and make a positive difference to their community and the region.

Nominations are now open for the 2019 Inspiring Women In Isaac Awards.

Mayor Anne Baker said the awards were the community’s chance to nominate women of all ages and from all walks of life who help make the region a better place to live, work and play.

“Isaac is a region which is feeding, powering and building communities, but I’m proudest to say our greatest asset is not our rich resources, fertile soils and paddocks, but our people,” she said.

"We are once again calling on residents to shine a spotlight on the inspirational stories and community contributions of some of the Isaac's finest women and help us celebrate the pure people power which drives our region.

“Our two award categories are Inspiring Woman in Isaac and Inspiring Young Woman in Isaac.
“Nominees could be someone special in your family, workplace or community. Simply share with us how they have inspired you or how they energise our communities.”

Mayor Baker said nominees and winners would be recognised at International Women’s Day events in communities across the region, held as part of the 2019 Queensland Women’s Week celebrations from March 2-10.

“Queensland Women’s Week recognises and celebrates the achievements of Queensland’s women and girls. Everyone has a role to play in creating a Queensland community that respects women, embraces gender equality, and promotes and protects the rights, interests and wellbeing of women and girls,” she said

Nomination forms are available online at Council’s website isaac.qld.gov.au/inspiringwomen or from Council offices and libraries. Nominations close Friday 15 February 2019.
