WOW Awards winners for 2016

The event was hosted by past WOW businesswoman of the Year award winner Susil Nelson.

This year, 21 women who contribute daily to the improvement of Papua New Guinea were recognised as finalists; from gynaecologists helping to prevent women’s cancers, to women fighting for equal pay and salary packages in a traditionally male-dominated field.

Over 100 nominations were received for the WOW awards in 2016, which marks the 10th anniversary of Westpac’s flagship awards program.
