Uluru Dialogues Co-Chair Professor Megan Davis has received “The Powerhouse” award from Marie Claire at the magazine’s Women Of The Year Awards held at the iconic Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney.

The annual awards night recognises and celebrates the tireless work, talent and passion of those who have inspired, advocated and blazed trails for Australian women throughout the year.

Professor Davis’ “Powerhouse Of The Year” award was one of 11 individual categories awards presented on the night.

In her acceptance speech, Professor Davis followed her inspiring Marie Claire Powertalks address from a few weeks earlier with a reflection on the year’s Voice referendum and its disappointing result.

“While we’re devastated by the result of the referendum, and the fact 9 million Aussies voted ‘no’, 6 million Aussies voted yes,” Professor Davis said.

“As we face, right now, the continuation of the status quo, the only solace that we find is in the 6 million friends we never knew we had.”
