Finalists for Northern England’s inaugural Women’s awards have been announced after nominations have come pouring in from across the country.
The awards will acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of British Women including female entrepreneurs, civil servants, charity founders amongst other professionals, whose hard work, talent and commitment is often under-represented.
They also intend do provide an opportunity and platform for women to inspire others, particularly younger women, as each nominee will have their own story to tell and advice to give.
Irfan Younis, CEO of Creative Oceanic said: “For far too long women have never been appreciated for everything that they manage and achieve despite the odds and with this year marking 100 years since the vote for women, this is the perfect time to launch this award ceremony and celebrate their outstanding achievements.”
