Innovators wanted for NZ Women of Influence Awards

The New Zealand Women of Influence Awards programme has launched for 2015 and they're looking for innovative women.

The Awards, presented by Fairfax Media and Westpac, recognise and celebrate women from all walks of life who make a difference to everyday Kiwis. The Innovation category, one of the 10 Award categories, focuses on women who are driving innovation - through their work in the sciences, medicine, academia, technology, finance, engineering or in organisational design and management.

If you, or someone you know, are a bold, energetic woman who is helping to shape New Zealand's future, submit a nomination now. Nominations close on 14 August, and more information is available on
