Every two years, the Zonta Club of Perth recognises a woman whose vision, commitment to leadership, mentoring, service or advocacy has made a difference to the lives of others.

The Woman of Achievement is an unsung hero who has previously been unrecognised but, without whom, others and communities would not have achieved their own success.

Nominations for the 2020 Zonta Club of Perth Woman of Achievement Award are now open until 5pm on 5 October 2020.

The awardee will be recognised at the Zonta District 23, Area 3 Founders Day Luncheon that will be held in Dunsborough on Saturday 7 November.
