The centenary of International Women’s Day in 2011, was celebrated in Western Australia with the launch of the WA Women’s Hall of Fame.
Seven years later, this annual event has become the most prestigious recognition program for women in this State with 164 WA women having been acknowledged by induction to our Hall of Fame.
Throughout our history Western Australian women have left their mark in communities through business; growing industries, leading movements, mentoring, building communities, fund-raising, working in science and research, the arts, child-care and volunteering, providing positive role-models and encouragement to the young women of our future.
Together with support from Lotterywest and the Department of Local Government and Communities, ISHAR Multicultural Women’s Health Centre proudly hosts this year’s WA Women’s Hall of Fame.
The WA Women’s Hall of Fame provides the opportunity for women from all walks of life, from all regions in this State, and from a myriad of diverse cultural backgrounds to be recognised for their achievements and the difference they have made to the lives of other Western Australian’s.
This year’s host organisation ISHAR, encourages everyone to consider nominating a woman they know.
It may be their mother or another relative, a colleague, a friend, a neighbour, or simply some-one they admire.
The 2018 inductees will be selected from one of the following categories: Community, Business, Health, Education, The Arts, Culture, STEM and Sport.
It is easy to nominate, and will take no more than 15 minutes.
