The Outstanding Female Award

About The Award

For the first time, WIRQ presents, with thanks to LCM Finance, leading international provider of dispute financing solution, the Exceptional Woman in Insolvency Award 2020.

As part of WIRQ’s objective to promote the involvement of women in insolvency, the introduction of this award only cements WIRQ’s efforts to encourage and support women in the field. The Exceptional Woman in Insolvency Award is a celebration of a woman in insolvency who has gone above and beyond in her field by remaining committed to the enhancement of female presence within the field, by supporting her colleagues and peers and leverages her a position to make a difference for women.

This award is for an outstanding female who has worked in the insolvency and restructuring industry for over 5 years and has demonstrated an exceptional level of leadership and commitment to women in the industry.

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

A supporter of WIRQ’s objectives, LCM is proud to sponsor such a prestigious award, and encourages the recognition and celebration of women making a difference for the better.
