Althea Carbon winner of Emerging Leader Award
Chapman Tripp solicitor Althea Carbon has won the Westpac Hotpoints Emerging Leader category of the 2014 Women of Influence Awards.
Ms Carbon, aged 25, was nominated for her work to interest more young women in entrepreneurship, science and technology.
Award Judge Jamie Fitzgerald said her commitment to not just her own "impressive personal achievements", but also to the performance of others "was very hard to match by anyone at any age".
The Emerging Leader category recognises young women aged between 16 and 30 who demonstrate a capacity to influence and act as catalysts for change, particularly in advocating and giving a voice to younger women and their concerns.
