This year’s finalists will be competing across 24 individual categories including Accountant of the Year and Bookkeeper of the Year, and five group categories including Employer of the Year and Training and Development Program of the Year

The highest scoring individual winner will receive the prestigious Excellence Award.

The national awards have quickly become the benchmark for excellence, championing the women who have dedicated themselves to propelling the industry forward.

They celebrate the achievements of the most successful women across the finance industry including brokers, accountants, bookkeepers, banking and finance lawyers, CEOs, entrepreneurs, thought leaders, and the rising stars of tomorrow, as well as employers.

Finalist submissions will now be delivered to a panel of respected professionals and business leaders, who will assess each submission against the criteria of each award category. 

The judges will score each part of the submission across the category’s criteria, giving an aggregated score.

The combined judging scores for each submission for each category will then be tabulated, with the highest scoring submission deemed the winner.

Commenting on the achievements of women in the finance industry across the nation, Momentum Media’s managing editor, mortgages, Annie Kane said: “Momentum Media, in partnership with Mortgage Choice, are thrilled to announce the finalists of the Women in Finance Awards 2023.

“We’re proud to be able to showcase the incredible women and companies in the finance industry who are excelling in their fields and playing a pivotal role in supporting the financial health of Australians in a changing economic environment.
