'HEAR THEM ROAR' video series

Women in Business Wagga Wagga has secured funding to create a series of videos celebrating the success of business women in regional Australia. The videos will shine a light on the professional excellence and accomplishments of those achieving success in regional Australia.

Covering a range of industries and professions, the series will illustrate the many dimensions of regional living, highlight the inspiring milestones which have already been achieved and provide a roadmap for future entrepreneurs by demonstrating what’s possible in this great regional city.

The purpose of the ‘Hear Them Roar’ video series is 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 people living and working in regional Australia to believe that they can achieve successful outcomes that are equal to (or surpass) that of 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 regional Australia as an ideal place to locate a business or government department
  • Emphasise the benefits that regional business have enjoyed as a result of advances in technology and improved transport options for accessing urban centres
  • Promote the Riverina region as a desirable place to live and work

Overwhelming response

Women in Business Wagga Wagga has been staggered by the number of high quality nominations received for the Hear Them Roar series.

Initially, the initiative was to create 10 videos, but due to the high calibre of nominations, we have decided to fund the production of a further four videos. Our thanks to Commins Hendriks who has agreed to sponsor the 15th video in the series.

The other candidates have had similar responses to their announcements which is great and aligns with the objectives of the initiative.

Successful candidates

Our independent panel of judges has notified the following candidates of their success in the series:

More women who have been selected to participate in the series will be notified and announced over the coming weeks.

We'll advise those who were not successful at that point as well - we wish we could include them all there were so many great and worthy nominations.

Distribution of completed videos

Each video segment will run for 5-20 minutes, depending on the available content. The videos will be promoted and available for viewing through social media, industry websites, cinemas, schools, and other learning institutions. Participants in the series will be required to sign a release form providing Women in Business Wagga with permission to use the videos in line with the objectives of the project.
