Acknowledging and honouring just some of the many powerful success stories of Australian Unsung Business Women.
Just some of the Australian women who have achieved great success, built incredible businesses, and opened the doors for so many other women to follow, flourish and grow.
Women like Diana Ryall, the first female MD of Apple Australia, Corinne Bot, founder and CEO of Polyglot Group, and Karen Lebsanft, Gold Stevie award-winner, and Co-founder of lavosh makers, Kurrajong Kitchen.
Exceptional success stories like family planning pioneer Dr Margaret Farquharson, and mother of five including two sets of twins, and now empowering women herself as a leading CEO Annie Gibbins.
Similarly Annette Shepherd, who co-founded The Shepherd Centre, who passed away in 1986, leaving a legacy of helping hundreds of hearing-impaired children go to mainstream schools.
Other great stories feature on our site about such as successful women like Jasmin Herro, Susan Farquhar, Dominique Grubisa, Mary Bacon, Susie Afsun and Michelle Ivanov.
So many amazing stories of triumph over the odds, with drive, vision and persistence… like Lielette Calleja who overcame tragedy in her family, and Dr April Armstrong who broke the cycle to become a medical industry leader, and so many other amazing Unsung Business Heroes.
We acknowledge them on this International Women’s Day 2020.
