Every year, we celebrate our Women in Media awards with a Power List, and so far, we’ve been absolutely blown away with the response.

“Looking for the livestream of B&T’s Women in Media Awards? You’ve found it! Click Here”

The Power List celebrates some of the most groundbreaking, awe-inspiring and frankly fantastic women keeping the industry going.

Now, this is just stage one. The list will then be cut down to a prestigious top 30 to be announced at the 2021 B&T Women in Media Awards, presented by Are Media.

Check out where the long list currently stands, and if there are any egregious ommissions, comment and let us know by Friday 23 July at 5pm (AEST)!

So, without further ado….

This list is being consistently updated.
