Our RRR Women’s Awards 2021 has been run and won and was a time for us to celebrate our winners’ contributions to their communities, businesses, and industries within RRR.
The RRR Women’s Awards are a completely new initiative in awards, and hopefully the start of a benchmark for highlighting the outstanding work these women are doing to keep our regions vibrant, supported, and alive.
Congratulations to all our 2021 RRR Women’s Award winners!

RRR Creative Woman of the Year – Olivia Everitt

We all have one in our community, who goes above and beyond with her passion and drive.
