ROTARY CELEBRATES INSPIRATIONAL WOMEN 2015
Calling on all Clubs to nominate an inspirational woman.
 
Five years ago, Rotary International District 9750 (Sydney) initiated the inaugural Inspirational Women’s Awards in our community. The event has increased in popularity each year and now receives considerable support and publicity across the state of New South Wales. Whilst the event began in the Sydney district, it is now supported by all Rotary Districts in NSW and Inner Wheel has enthusiastically joined the group.
 
Clubs in our District can now become involved by nominating their Inspirational Woman 2015.
 
OBJECTIVE
NSW Rotary Districts, in partnership with Inner Wheel are holding a significant event to identify and honour outstanding women for their service to the community. We now invite all clubs in the District to participate.
 
ELIGIBILITY
  • Women from any age group, ethnicity or religion
  • Women who are quiet achievers/unsung heroes
  • Women of high ethical standard
  • Women who have demonstrated either a significant contribution to the community, (local, nationally or internationally) either within or outside their vocation,
  • Women who have given “Service Above Self” in their field of endeavour
  • Women who are inspirational role models
  • Women must live or work in the nominating District and be Australian Citizens or Permanent Residents
  • Rotarians if the nomination is based solely on community service outside of Rotary
 
SELECTION PROCESS
Each Rotary District can select suitably qualified women who have shown exemplary service and dedication in one or more areas of community service including vocational service, the support of youth and meeting the needs of international and local communities.
 
District Governor Gerard McMillan wishes to involve all clubs within District 9670 in this process by asking for nominations.
