Campbell Town's nursing director Priya Jose was recognised for her leadership in her industry at the International Women's Day Awards for Excellence.
Ms Jose was named the state service's inspirational leader at the awards in Hobart.
LGAT chief executive officer Katrena Stephenson said the awards were an excellent way to recognise the work women were doing to create a gender equal world.
"The theme for this International Women's Day is 'Each for Equal'," Dr Stephenson said.
"Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day."
In addition to Ms Jose, the awards recognised six women in Tasmania's local and state government, and community services:
- Clarence City Council's aldermen Heather Chong
- Waratah-Wynyard Council's corporate and community services director Tracey Bradley
- Department of Health's government relations and strategic policy manager Lisa Caswell
