2020 RESULTS Leadership Awards.

RESULTS Australia’s annual Leadership Awards celebrate the hard work and commitment of our advocates and the parliamentarians, journalists, like-minded organisations and partners in the business community with whom we work.

This year, COVID restrictions meant that our in-person event moved online. This provided us with the opportunity to include our wonderful advocates and supporters from across the country!

We thank all for joining us on this special occasion in recognising the people and organisations who work alongside RESULTS to help make the world a better place.  Health is now more important globally than ever before.
