Minister for Women Tanya Davies said the NSW Women of the Year Local Awards celebrate the contributions and successes of women who are often quiet achievers.
“The Local Awards are designed to acknowledge women who are making a significant impact in the places where we live and work, and in the lives of people around them. Local award winners exemplify the spirit of their communities,” Mrs Davies said.
Ms Bishop attended the 2018 NSW Women of the Year Awards ceremony in Sydney on International Women’s Day, March 8 with Mr Coure and NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian.
