The Tasplan International Women's Day Awards for Excellence are designed to recognise and give visibility to outstanding contributions by women in Local Government, the Tasmanian State Service and the Community Sector.

The Awards judging panel consists of Kym Goodes (CEO, TasCOSS), Katrena Stephenson (CEO, LGAT) and Jenny Gale (Secretary, DPAC).
