Female Young Gun Award

About The Award

With thanks to SV Partners, Australia’s experts in financial insolvency, WIRQ is excited to announce the WIRQ Female Young Gun of the Year Award 2020

Annually recognising the achievements of up and coming females in the industry is a way WIRQ can continually aim to fulfil its objective to promote the involvement of women in insolvency.

Proudly presented by SV Partners, who supports the encouragement and recognition of early-career females, this award is an opportunity to motivate and encourage young females who are making strides so early in their career. This award will serve to embolden any young female already striving towards the benchmark.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to the independent judges, Tim Cole (AFSA), Nayanisha Samarakoon (ASIC) and Kylie Downes QC, for taking the time to review and consider this year’s nomination submissions.

Any female in the industry with less than 5 years’ experience in insolvency is eligible and we encourage you to nominate anyone who comes to mind.
