Local resident, Unis Goh has been named alongside some of our state’s most inspiring women as a finalist in the 2023 NSW Women of the Year Awards.

State Member for Ku-ring-gai Alister Henskens SC said the annual awards play an important role in recognising inspirational women from diverse backgrounds across the state.

“These awards are a wonderful opportunity to honour the women and girls who are making a tangible difference to our community,” Mr Henskens said.

For decades Unis Goh has been dedicated to promoting accessible and affordable housing in NSW and continues to volunteer with community housing, homelessness, and disability organisations.

Minister for Women Bronnie Taylor said the 34 remarkable women and girls named as finalists this year are making a significant impact across the board, from science to education, health, industry, culture and community.

“I’m always inspired by the calibre of women nominated for these awards and the outstanding contributions they are making in their communities across the state,” Mrs Taylor said.

“There were almost 400 nominations, showcasing incredible women from all walks of life who are championing positive change. Unis Goh is an inspiration to us all and it’s wonderful to see her getting the recognition she deserves.

“On behalf of NSW, I extend a massive congratulations to Ms Goh. Thank you for the incredible contributions you have made advocating for the disadvantaged across NSW.”

There are seven award categories in the 2023 program, including the Premier’s Award for NSW Woman of the Year, which is selected from pool of category winners.
