Women's Honour Roll - Nominations open!

Do you know an inspiring woman from the Hepburn Shire? 

International Women’s Day is celebrated across the world on 8 March each year. The purpose of the day is to recognise women and their achievements.

In 2005, the Heather Mutimer Honour Roll was established to pay tribute to the women in the Hepburn Shire whose contributions, courage and examples have led to significant social change for women.

The roll provides a forum to acknowledge women who have made a difference in our Shire. By acknowledging these women, past and present, they become role models for generations to come.

We encourage you to think about a woman you know who deserves to be recognised.

To nominate an inspiring woman – download the form here(PDF, 247KB). Alternatively drop into one of Council’s Customer Service hubs to pick up a hard copy.

Nominations close on Thursday 27 October at 2pm.

If you have any questions please email bobrien@hepburn.vic.gov.au
