The 2018 NZ Women of Influence Awards were held at the SKY City Convention Centre in Auckland on Tuesday night. Southland Chamber of Commerce CEO Sheree Carey was a finalist for the diversity category alongside two other Southland women.
Steph Dryhrberg, who now lives in Wellington in the same category, and Invercargill woman Rebecca Keoghan who won the Rural category.
Rebecca is currently the general manager and director of Westland Milk Products and Pamu Academy on the West Coast. She is the daughter of Invercargill businessman and Export Southland Chairman Graham Dick. In 2016 she was named Dairy Woman of the Year and last year was named a Member of the NZ Order of Merit for her services to business.
Mrs Carey said “it was an amazing experience to be part of. I was honoured to be among 82 inspirational women on the eve of the 125th Suffrage anniversary”
