THE third Kingston woman of the year will be announced next month.

There are 24 nominees for this year’s award. The winner will receive the award at Kingston’s International Women’s Day celebration event on Friday, 5 March.

The event will be hosted by 2020 Kingston woman of the year award and youth awards finalist Tara Graves. Indigenous Outreach Projects and Melbourne Djembe Group will perform, and Resilient Aspiring Women co-founder Mariam Issa will be the keynote speaker.

The mayor Steve Staikos said “this year there are 24 exceptional nominees for the Kingston woman of the year award, who each contribute wonderful things to our community, through their professional, volunteer or personal achievements.”

“This year’s theme is a challenged world is an alert world. We can choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.”

The event will be held at Kingston City Hall in Moorabbin, 9:45am-12.30pm on 5 March. Attendance is limited due to COVID-19 restrictions. Register attendance at kingstoniwd2021.eventbrite.com
