Sharon Levy of The Haven – Nepean Women’s Shelter was recently recognised at the 2019 NSW Women of the Year Awards breakfast ceremony at the ICC Sydney as the Penrith Local Woman of the Year and Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith presented her with her award.

"Sharon’s leadership in the establishment of The Haven – Nepean Women’s Shelter has been outstanding and makes her a fitting recipient of this award.”  

Stuart Ayres said the event provided Sharon with the opportunity to celebrate her achievements and the inspiring efforts of other trailblazing women across NSW.

“It is a truly inspiring to see women, like Sharon being recognised for the profound and positive impact they have had on their communities,” Stuart Ayres said.

“The Penrith community is a better place because of Sharon and I was proud to see her represent us in Sydney at the state-wide awards ceremony.”

Minister for Women Tanya Davies said there were an unprecedented number of nominations from across NSW for the 2019 state-wide awards program and more than 9,000 public votes received.

“The NSW Liberals & Nationals Government is working hard to progress gender equity for women across the State and we are so pleased the momentum of the Awards has grown year on year,” Mrs Davies said.

“The Awards are an important opportunity to acknowledge women who are using their skills and passion to positively shape our society and inspire future generations and I would like to thank all of the nominees, finalists and winners for their contribution.”
