Now in its fourth year, the Women in Finance Awards - run in partnership with principal partner AMP Bank – is a national awards program designed to shine a spotlight on the strength, diversity and innovation female leadership brings to professional and financial services in Australia.

This year, there are 28 categories and one excellence award up for grabs, which aim to highlight the achievements of women across a broad range of industries that contribute to Australia’s financial services market – from mortgage broking to financial planning, accountancy and law.

This year’s awards will be delivered through a virtual awards broadcast on the evening of 10 September 2020, which will bring the excitement and fanfare straight to your homes as we look to recognise the achievements of talented professionals leading the way.
