The South Australian Women's Honour Roll is an important part of an ongoing strategy to increase the formal recognition of women for their contribution to the South Australian community. Now held biennially, the Honour Roll acknowledges and celebrates the diversity of women in our community and their commitment to effecting change to ensure that we live in a safer and more inclusive society.
The Office for Women encourages you to consider nominating a woman or women that you believe have made significant contributions to the South Australian community. By recognising the achievements and dedication of women we raise the profile of their work, and increase its visibility in a society geared to take women’s efforts for granted.
Twenty women who have made an outstanding contribution to our community will be included in the 2017 South Australian Women’s Honour Roll publication. All women nominated will be included on the ongoing list of nominees.
