The Blackmores Mercie Whellan Women+Wellbeing Awards 2018 celebrate acts of courage and determination by women in the Northern Sydney region* who have made an outstanding contribution to the local community by improving the health and wellbeing of others.
Often strengthened by their own personal challenges and adversity, candidates will have worked to deliver a positive difference to the community and those closest to them.
The Blackmores Mercie Whellan Women+Wellbeing Awards 2018 are intended to provide an opportunity to reflect on progress made and help broaden the dialogue on gender parity and inclusion.
These awards are being run in partnership with CCNB, trusted advisors in community health, aged care and disability, in recognition of the essential role played by community organisations in supporting holistic wellbeing and the many amazing women driving and supporting key initiatives.
Forty finalists and their guests will be invited to attend a Blackmores International Women’s Day Harbour Cruise on Thursday 8th March 2018 featuring special guest speaker and journalist Tracey Spicer, who is renowned for her passion for social justice and commitment to equality.
Winners will be awarded $500 prize money and a Blackmores Annual Wellbeing Package including a naturopathic consultation and Blackmores products.
Nominations are open for the following categories:
- StrongBeing: Acts of courage and determination by everyday women who have survived and prospered through adversity.
- CommunityBeing: Caregivers who work tirelessly for others including carers, health and community care professionals.
- ChangeBeing: Celebrating bold acts of leadership, advocacy and/or education to help girls and women realise their ambitions and potential to help themselves and others.
- YoungBeing: Celebrating the achievements of young women aged 16-22 who have achieved extraordinary social change in their community through passion, commitment and vision.
