“This is a significant announcement for women. An award that acknowledges all the diverse ways in which women contribute, and that values them equally… Every year here at NEXT we write hundreds of stories about wonderful New Zealand women in our country achieving amazing things. It became very clear to us that New Zealand needs an award that formally acknowledges these and other role models”.
NEXT Woman Of The Year was launched in 2010 and was won by Dr Emma Parry, Clinical Director of Maternal Fetal Medicine at Starship Children’s Hospital.
