Nominations for the Business Woman of the Year Award 2020 open in spring!
Thank you to everyone who nominated or submitted an application last year.
It’s no secret that since March 2020 the world has been a very different place. We have experienced things that we never once thought possible and learned a whole new vocabulary too. Words like furlough, social distancing and R-rate are now deeply embedded into the English language and the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic will undoubtedly be with us for many years to come.
It is for this reason that the Women of the Year organisers have agreed to change the nomination process since the last Awards. They have decided that it would be inappropriate to try to recognise and celebrate success in a year that has such a dramatic impact on businesses since the pandemic emerged here in the UK.
The 2022 Women of the Year 40th Anniversary will instead celebrate the achievements of both individuals and groups that are worthy of recognition due to the work that they have done in supporting each other through what have been the most difficult of times. The Business Woman of the Year nomination process has been adapted and extended to combine 2020, 2021 and 2022 and the gathering of all nominations received since the last Awards in 2019 into a single celebratory event which will be held in October 2023.
Entries are now open for the Business Woman of the Year Award and Woman with Edge Award 2023 which, as always are expected to attract strong candidates from across the UK. Previous winners of these prestigious titles have been women of huge talent and skill who are also determined to further raise the profile of their peers to a wider audience and in fact, three of our former winners have gone on to be named in the Honours list to recognise their entrepreneurial success.
As is usual, nominations can be sent for entrepreneurs or members of an organisation’s senior management team from all industries and from the private and public sectors. Colleagues, clients, family and friends can send in nominations or candidates can nominate themselves.
The winner of the Business Woman of the Year and Woman with Edge 2023 titles will have made a major contribution to the financial success and performance of an organisation and the judging panel will assess their different skills, abilities, influences and achievements.
