Nominations are open for the Fonterra Dairy Woman of the Year award. This sees women dedicated to the future of New Zealand's dairy industry recognised and celebrated nationwide.

Women are encouraged to nominate their rural role models before March when finalists will be put before a judging panel comprised of Dairy Women's Network Trustee Sophie Stanley, 2020 Dairy Woman of the Year Ash-Leigh Campbell, and representatives from Fonterra, Global Women and Ballance Agri-Nutrients.

The recipient will be announced at a gala dinner at the Dairy Women's Network conference in Invercargill in April.

"The Fonterra Dairy Woman of the Year award is a prestigious award recognising the hard mahi and leadership that women contribute to this very important sector," Stanley says.

"While the last two years have thrown us uncertainty in many ways, we have seen so many examples of women stepping up and leading themselves, their peers and the industry through these challenging times. Leadership has never been more important, and we encourage all women in the sector to consider self-nominating or nominating a peer who you think has demonstrated the leadership qualities we need for the future."

Fonterra chief executive Miles Hurrell says no other award in New Zealand specifically recognises the capability and success of women in the dairy industry and we are proud to sponsor it.

"In these challenging times it's more important than ever to recognise the outstanding women who are passionate about dairying, who are leaders in their communities and who work to be positive role models, bringing good people together to achieve good things and enabling the next generation of farmers to succeed."
