Money Management and Super Review will recognise and reward accomplished women in the financial services industry across 14 categories in October at its Women in Financial Services Awards.

Last year’s Woman of the Year, Suzanne Smith, said while she had seen some improvement in how women were represented and treated within the industry there was still much to do.

“While we didn’t cause the problem, it’s still our [women’s] problem to deal with,” she said.

Smith noted that seeing “someone who is just really normal and ordinary” succeed would help make young women believe that they can do the same.

“We’ve just got to start saying thank you and accepting the praise,” she said.

This year the awards will be held at the Four Seasons hotel in Sydney on 23 October.

Nominations are still open and women can nominate here until 12 September.
