A ground-breaking new awards program that recognises the outstanding work of women within the financial services industry has officially sold out due to popular demand.
With more than 700 attendees coming to the event, the inaugural Women in Finance Awards, hosted by Momentum Media in partnership with NAB, has now completely sold out.
The industry-first event recognises the outstanding work of women across multiple sectors of the financial services, celebrating their successes on a national stage to support the continuing growth, development and evolution of gender equality in the workplace.
The finalists for the awards were announced last month and include many representatives and brokers from the mortgage industry, such as Katrina Rowlands, principal of Mortgage Success (Finance Broker of the Year, Principal of the Year, and Regional Leader of the Year); Nicole Cannon of Pink Finance (Mortgage and Finance Broker of the Year and Principal of the Year); and Marie Mortimer, managing director of loans.com.au (Chief Executive Officer of the Year and Young Leader of the Year).
The 24 judges are currently in the process of assessing the finalists, and the winners will be announced on 21 September at a black tie event at The Star hosted by talented stand-up comedian Wendy Harmer.
Ms Harmer is acknowledged as one of Australia’s most versatile entertainers and has worked as a broadcaster, author, journalist and stage performer.
"The Women in Finance Awards would like to thank the judging panel for their involvement in this inaugural event," said Jim Hall, head of events and professional development at Momentum Media.
