Closing looms for Dairy Woman of the Year nominations

There are just two weeks left to nominate someone for New Zealand’s biggest industry award for women in dairying.

The Dairy Women’s Network’s Dairy Woman of the Year Awards close on 15 November 2014.

Sponsored by Fonterra, the prestigious award includes the chance to attend the 12-month Breakthrough Leaders Programme run by Global Women, worth $25,000.

DWN chief executive Zelda De Villiers said the Dairy Woman of the Year Award celebrates and advances women who are making a difference in the dairy industry, in their dairy businesses and in their communities.

“Dairying women play a vital role in their businesses, not to mention their communities. We know amongst our members we have real talent, passion and drive and we want to develop and reward those women for what they offer to the industry,” she said.

“So whether you are a husband, a family member, a friend or colleague of a DWN member who is deserving of this awesome opportunity, please get your nominations in.”

Finalists will be individually interviewed in December by a panel of five judges including representatives from DWN, Fonterra, Global Women, DWN gold partner ASB and 2013 award winner Justine Kidd.

The winner will be announced at the gala dinner at the DWN annual conference on 18 March 2015 in Invercargill.
