More information

  • There is a two-tiered approach to judging these Awards – firstly involving a WLA working panel and then our list of external judges.
  • All finalists will be contacted by the WLA team to confirm that they have been shortlisted for the Awards and to verify details in their nomination form.
  • Each award will be assigned a panel of external judges. The list of finalists will be sent to the judges for assessment who will inform us of any potential conflict of interest.
  • Our judges are asked to independently assess according to the award criteria.
  • The finalists are invited to prepare a short speech should they be the overall winner
  • Offer clear and specific examples.
  • Get to the point quickly: Your story is important, but it’s the results demonstrated that will ultimately see the application shine
  • Indicate how you’re advocating for a more inclusive culture
  • We’re not looking for great writing in these applications, but rather clear examples of what has been achieved.
  • If you would like to sponsor one of our awards, please download our sponsorship brochure. (Link to PDF brochure – currently underway).
