Member for Morwell Russell Northe is calling for nominations of local women to the Victorian Honour Roll of Women for 2017
Mr Northe said the Women’s Honour Roll, established in 2001, celebrates the achievements of Victorian women in a wide range of fields including women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, aboriginal women, women with a disability, and younger, regional and rural women.
“It’s a tremendous pleasure to call for local nominations for the Victorian Honour Roll of Women for 2017,” Mr Northe said.
“It is important that we recognise and celebrate women in our rural and regional communities who are making extraordinary contributions through their vision, leadership, commitment and hard work,” he said.
Mr Northe said more than 600 Victorian women have been inducted onto the roll since 2001.
“If people know of a local woman who is a genuine role model through her contribution to the community then nominating her for the Victorian Honour Roll of Women is a tremendous way of saying thank you,” he said.
Nominees must be either born in Victoria, have spent a considerable part of their life in Victoria or have made a significant contribution to Victoria.
Nominations close on Monday 17 July 2017. Further information can be found at www.vic.gov.au/honourrollofwomen
