The  Soroptimist Leadership Awards, formally known as the Stella Giles Award for Achievement , sponsored by Soroptimist International Western Australia, recognises a Western Australian woman who has made a significant contribution in her chosen field and to the community (who does not have to be a Soroptimist). A monetary grant up to a maximum of $10,000 provides funds for the recipient to undertake a project over two years that will benefit women and girls. 

The Award is a collective project supported by all Soroptimist International clubs in Western Australia. It is made on a biennial basis, to a nominated candidate considered worthy of receiving the Award. 

Soroptimist International’s Vision is that “Women and girls will achieve their individual and collective potential, realise aspirations and have an equal voice in creating strong, peaceful communities worldwide”. The Soroptimist International of Western Australia Stella Giles Award for Achievement contributes to that vision.

The Award carries the name Stella Giles in memory of a Soroptimist who worked tirelessly to extend the influence of Soroptimists in Western Australia.
