Nominations are officially open for Yarra's 2016 Inspirational Women of Yarra Award. This award celebrates and formally acknowledges the unique and important contribution women make to our community.       

The award is open to women or groups of women who live, work or study in the City of Yarra and who have made a significant contribution to the community.

The panel will assess the applications, with the nominees and final recipient to be announced at the Yarra Council International Women’s Day celebration on Tuesday 8 March at the Collingwood Town Hall.
