WMAA Women in the Environment Award
WITE 2017 Awards

The Waste Management Association of Australia (WMAA) is pleased to call for nominations for the 2017 national WMAA Women in the Environment Award. The Award is proudly sponsored by Blue Environment Pty Ltd.

The Award is in recognition of passionate women who work in all areas of environmental sustainability, and whose actions and ideas have had a significant positive impact on the environment in Australia over the past five years. Applications are encouraged from all women who are recognised as leaders by their peers, for the ongoing positive impact and commitment that they have had in addressing sustainability.

Last year's award was presented to Samantha Cross, Director Cross Connections Consulting. Ms Cross is a leader in the circular economy space across industry sectors. She presents waste generators, business and government with alternatives to landfill, facilitating opportunities to achieve enhanced sustainability and commercial outcomes.

"I believe we as an industry, and as individuals, have a role to play in encouraging, supporting and fostering greater diversity. We want to attract a mix of people to make sure our industry continues to draw, develop and retain talent, challenges the status quo and supports the changing needs of our businesses and communities when it comes to better managing waste", said Ms Cross.


Nominations for the Award must be submitted via the online nomination form and received by 31 August 2017. All nominations and their supporting information must be lodged by clicking here. The nomination must be supported by a referee, along with their contact details, who has had at least five years' experience working in the environment industry.
