I am seeking nominations for a local “Queensland Inspiring Woman” to go in the running to be honoured at my breakfast at Queensland Parliament House in Brisbane on March 7, 2014.
As Speaker I am delighted to be hosting the Queensland Inspiring Women awards in recognition of International Women’s Day and to acknowledge the contributions made by the many amazing women in our communities.
The theme of this year’s event is Women of Generosity and will be honouring women who demonstrate a spirit of generosity, whether through a particular initiative or through a lifestyle of encouraging service to others.
I encourage you to get involved by nominating a local woman who has strengthened individuals or communities through their generosity of time or skill, in the area of business, community service, the arts, the environment or another arena.
Nominations must be received by Friday 14 February. You will need to include the name and contact details of the nominee, including a short description that demonstrates why they can be considered a ‘Woman of Generosity’. Remember to also include your own name and contact phone number in case further details are required.
