Jennifer Morris, CEO of The Orijen Group, has been announced as a winner in The Australian Financial Review and Westpac 100 Women of Influence Awards for 2014.
Jennifer has been recognised in the Diversity category for her contribution and dedication to promoting opportunities for women to progress into executive positions in their careers. She says:
“I am honoured to be recognised in the Westpac/AFR 2014 100 Women of Influence Awards. This achievement would not have been possible without the support and encouragement of all of my clients, who have trusted me to take them on a journey which was both challenging and rewarding, and my colleagues who have openly shared their knowledge and wisdom with me.”
Now in its third year, the 100 Women of Influence Awards celebrate outstanding women from a wide variety of sectors across Australia. Entrants into the awards were assessed by a panel of esteemed judges and have been recognised based on their outstanding ability to demonstrate vision, leadership, innovation and action in and beyond their fields.
Gail Kelly, Westpac Group Chief Executive Officer said, “The breadth and calibre of our 100 Women of Influence for 2014 is remarkable. It is such a privilege to be able to recognise and celebrate the outstanding contributions these women are making to Australia. The 2014 winners will join the now 300 strong, prestigious alumni of these awards. We are blessed to have such great numbers of influential women doing incredible things in many industries and organisations right across Australia.”
Fairfax Media CEO Greg Hywood said: “This year’s 100 Women of Influence join a growing movement that is changing our society for the better in a myriad of ways. Thanks and congratulations to everyone for the contribution they are making.”
