Inspiring stories of high achieving women in regional Australia

Do you know a high achieving business woman in the Riverina who demonstrates the incredible outcomes that can be achieved by women living and working in regional Australia?

Nominations are now open for the Women in Business Wagga 'Hear them Roar' video series.

Covering a range of industries and professions, the 'HEAR THEM ROAR' series will illustrate the many dimensions of regional living, highlighting the inspiring milestones which have already been achieved and providing a roadmap for future entrepreneurs by demonstrating what’s possible in this great region.

We're looking for ten high achieving women to feature in the videos, to help shine a light on the professional excellence and accomplishments of those achieving success in regional Australia. 

Ten videos will be produced in total, thanks to funding provided by the Commonwealth Bank ($750), Wagga Wagga City Council ($1,500) and the NSW Government ($5,000).

The objectives of the video series are to:

  • Celebrate the success of women who have achieved outstanding outcomes while living and working in regional Australia
  • Positively influence perceptions around the type of career and lifestyle people can enjoy in regional Australia
  • Inspire women living and working in regional Australia to believe they can achieve outcomes that are equally successful to their urban counterparts
  • Encourage more people living in urban centres to consider living and working in regional Australia
  • Encourage government and business to prioritise the needs of regional Australia in planning and allocation of funding
  • promote the Riverina region as a fantastic place to live and work

A full overview of the Hear Them Roar video series can be accessed here. Nomination forms are available at this link.

Nominations will formally close on 24 June however the first two successful candidates will be selected from submissions received prior to 24 May, to enable production to get underway. The remaining eight candidates will be selected by 30 June.

We invite you to take a look at the pilot video. Note that the format for the video is being evolved to provide the best possible production in line with the objectives of the project.
