100 Women of Influence Awards

Qantas is proud to present The Australian Financial Review 100 Women of Influence Awards.

The Australian Financial Review 100 Women of Influence Awards presented by Qantas encompasses ten categories, with the aim of identifying a diverse group of women championing change in business and society. We want to uncover and promote Australian women who have dedicated their time and energy to help and encourage other women in their industry, and who are fighting for change every day.

These are women who confront unfairness and don’t take no for an answer; who identify what needs to be done then roll up their sleeves to do it; and who use their skills and ability to help change the status quo to a more equal, more diverse, and vibrant society.

Lesley Grant Qantas Group Executive People, Culture and Corporate Affairs said: “Qantas has a strong emphasis on diversity and equality in the workplace – from pilots and engineers to corporate employees and our front line team – so we are pleased to be working with The Australian Financial Review to shine the spotlight on influential Australian women and inspire the next generation of trailblazers."
