WA Women’s Hall of Fame 2023 launches call for nominations

As part of Women’s Health Week celebrations, last month, the WA Women’s Hall of Fame Call for Nominations 2023, was officially launched in the recently renamed Edith Cowan Lobby at Parliament House by Minister for Child Protection; Women’s Interests; Prevention of Family and Domestic Violence and Community Services, Simone McGurk MLA.

“We know there is no shortage of amazing Western Australian women who deserve to be recognised and profiled. The WA Women’s Hall of Fame is a powerful celebration of women in our community who show us what is possible through passion and dedication, and who motivate others to strive in a wide field of endeavours. 

“I encourage everyone to consider the women making an impact in their lives and to make a nomination to the 2023 WA Women’s Hall of Fame,” she said.

WA Women’s Hall of Fame chairperson Fiona Reid, announced Kerry Sanderson, 2015 Inductee, and Kim Beazley as the 2023 ‘Call for Nomination Champions’.

On accepting the role as Champion, Ms Sanderson said, “Those admitted to the WA Women’s Hall of Fame can be proud that they have made a difference to our wonderful State or to others who live here. 

“Often in the past their contribution would go unrecognised, but luckily the establishment of the WA Women’s Hall of Fame allows others to learn about the contribution of many women to Western Australia or to other Western Australians. 

“For the individual there is also the sense of pride to know that their contribution has been acknowledged. Please take the time to nominate someone you believe should be entered into the Hall of Fame”

Nominations are now open and close December 4, 2022. Nominations will be accepted in the categories of: Health, Community, STEM, Culture, Education, Arts, Sport, and Business. 

Nominations are also welcome for the Roll of Honour, to be inducted posthumously.

The Hall of Fame is an incredible record of the diversity in life for women around our State. It celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women, reflecting on how far we have come, and how far we still must go to realise gender equality, which we all seek as a balanced community.
