I was so thrilled and honoured to be a finalist in the Marie Claire x Bumble Glass Ceiling Awards in June, celebrating women doing amazing things in business! It was truly a pinch-me moment to be nominated for Mama Maya in the ‘Social Conscience’ category alongside Justine Flynn, co-founder of Thankyou, and Megan Etheridge OAM, founder of Dress For Success (our category winner!).

The judging panel was made up of high-profile “ceiling smashers” and business leaders, including former Prime Minister Julia Gillard, celebrated chef Kylie Kwong, fashion designer Camilla Franks, World Champion surfer Layne Beachley, Seven journalist Melissa Doyle, Business Chicks CEO Olivia Ruello, ABC host Virginia Trioli, Bumble’s Associate Marketing Director, APAC, Michelle Battersby, Estée Lauder Companies managing director Terry Little, and Marie Claire editor Nicky Briger.
