Do you know an inspirational woman who deserves recognition, why not nominate them for the 2021 Rotary Inspirational Women's Awards (RIWA). The nominations are now open. 
 
The NSW Rotary Inspirational Women's Awards are an initiative and co-ordinated by female Rotary members of the Greater Sydney and Illawarra Clubs, who wanted to acknowledge and celebrate community service performed by women through their vocations, their skills, and their time in their various activities and endeavours. It is to celebrate the "quiet achievers", whose actions, commitment, dedication, perseverance, and proactivity, inspire others and make a real difference in their communities, and improving the lives of others, just like Rotary does. 
 
RIWA recognises service to the community across all sectors in each geographical area of NSW and is open to all women over 18 years. You can submit your nomination by going to https://riwa.awardsplatform.com. Nominations close 16th June 2021, and finalists will be announced on 21st July 2021. The winners will be announced at the Awards ceremony in Sydney on 19th September 2021.
 
The Awards are divided into three categories: Urban, Rural and Health:
1. Young Inspirational Women of the Year - 18-30 years
2. Inspirational Women of the Year - 30+ years
3. Inspirational Health Worker - 18-30 Years of age and 30+ years
 
So start thinking about the women in your community, who give their time, and think about providing them with some recognition for their quiet volunteer work.
