The City of Canterbury Bankstown are one of the first local councils to introduce awards celebrating International Women’s Day.

Bankstown Women’s Health Centre CEO, Women's Initiatives Network Chair and judge for this year’s awards, Mariam Mourad, said it’s important to take the time to acknowledge the women around us.

"Women all over our City are powerful, hard-working and selfless – they’re leaders," Ms Mourad said.

"We want to hear about the women in your lives that have contributed to society, demonstrated leadership or helped others."

Nominations are open in five categories:

  •  Woman of the Year;
  •  Young Woman of the Year (18-35 years as of 31 December 2018);
  • Community Woman of the Year;
  • Local Sports Woman of the Year; and
  • Creative Arts and Cultural Woman of the Year.

Mayor Khal Asfour said he was proud to represent the first Council conducting Women of the Year Awards at a local government level.

"We have more than 173,000 inspiring women in our City who go above and beyond in different fields," Mayor Asfour said.

"I’m married to a great woman and am related to many more. International Women’s Day is all about celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women everywhere."

To be eligible for any of the awards, nominees must:

  • Live and/or work in Canterbury-Bankstown;
  • Demonstrate leadership;
  • Contribute to improving the lives of people in Canterbury-Bankstown; and
  • Demonstrate achievements or outcomes above and beyond their occupational roles.

Nominations, which close at 5pm Thursday 22 February, can be submitted via

The winners will be presented with their awards at a ceremony at Bankstown Arts Centre on Thursday 8 March, followed by high tea.

Bankstown Arts Centre will continue the International Women’s Day celebrations, with the Girls to the Front exhibition from 5-29 March.
