Regional business women are being encouraged to nominated for the 26th Belmont and Western Australian Small Business Awards.
The awards, which are coordinated by the Belmont Business Enterprise Centre and supported by the City of Belmont and the centre, highlight the value that small businesses contribute to the WA economy.
There are 23 award categories including customer service, community spirit, sustainability and volunteer of the year, and 20 of these are State-wide.
Belmont centre chief executive and Business and Professional Women WA President Carol Hanlon said the awards were an important way to showcase the efforts of women in business.
“As at June 30, 2018, small business represented around 97 per cent of all businesses in Western Australia,” Ms Hanlon said.
“Women need encouragement to stop and think about the amazing work they are doing.
“They deserve recognition and this is a great way for those around them to acknowledge and nominate (them).” Entries close September 20 through belmontbec.com/awards.
