A 3-stage judging process
Women can be nominated or self-nominate for the Woman of Achievement Award. Nomination is easy – just click one of the many NOMINATE buttons on this website to complete a short Nomination form.
Everyone who’s nominated is invited to complete an Application Form. We ask those who nominate others to encourage them to fill in the form. It’s not long, but applicants often find it difficult to reflect on and express in writing how they are supporting the progress of women in their organisations.
Stage 1 | Selection of Category Finalists by the Candidate Selection Panel
Stage 2 | Selection of Category Winners by either the Category Judging Panels (for a sponsored Category) OR the Category Adjudication Panel
Stage 3 | Selection of the Woman of Achievement Award Winner by the Main Judging Panel
Identifying the Category Award Winner
Category Winners were announced at a Celebration Evening held each October.
Identifying the overall Woman of Achievement
Following the Woman of Achievement Celebration Evening the Main Judging Panel interviewed each Category Award Winner and determined the year’s Woman of Achievement who was revealed at the Annual Celebration Lunch.
