Ms Fentiman described the calibre of this year’s recipients as inspirational.
“Today we celebrate and recognise the achievements and efforts of so many incredible women in our community”.
“Women who work with our most vulnerable, leaders who inspire the next generation and young advocates who promote inclusivity and uplift the women around them”.
“This is one of my favourite events of the year” she said.
Yarrabilba resident Lucy Reilly was acknowledged for her quiet dedication and commitment to community volunteering.
Division 4 Area Councillor Laurie Koranski was recognised for her contribution to the City. Councillor Koranski said the awards ceremony was an important reminder for women to work together to keep progressing.

“It is a privilege for me to serve as an elected member and I am ever mindful of the importance of supporting other women in their leadership journeys”.
