Nominations close 16 December for top dairying woman award

Women working in the dairy industry are being urged to get their nominations in for the 2013 Dairy Woman of the Year award, which closes for entry on 16 December 2012.

Sponsored by Fonterra, the prestigious award includes the chance to attend the year-long Women in Leadership course run by Global Women, worth $25,000.

Dairy Women’s Network chief executive Sarah Speight said the Dairy Woman of the Year award celebrates and advances women who are making a real difference in the dairy industry, in their dairying businesses and in their communities.

“So many dairying women are the pillars of their communities. They are extraordinarily passionate farmers, pushing not only their own boundaries but those of the industry, continuously looking for ways we can all benefit. We want to hear about these women!

“We are asking their colleagues, friends, husbands or business partners to please nominate them for this important award before entries close on 16 December.”

The Dairy Woman of the Year will be announced at a gala dinner at the Dairy Women’s Network annual conference on 20 March 2013 in Nelson. Full information and nomination forms can be downloaded at the Dairy Women’s Network website: www.dwn.co.nz .
