Karen Johnson, Head of Large Corporates for Barclays in the North West said; “Women from all sectors across the North West are securing key roles in businesses and we want to recognise exceptional achievements for the contribution they are making. We are seeking entries from women and businesses in any sector or industry and this is a fantastic opportunity to bring together the business community from across the region to share knowledge and ideas, helping to grow the North West economy.”
Nicola Hodkinson, Director of Business Services at Bolton-based Seddon Construction is taking part in a panel Q&A at the launch event. She said, “Women in business are a major contributor to both the regional and national economy, but there are still too many barriers that women have to overcome in comparison to their male counterparts. As well as providing an opportunity to network and share ideas and knowledge, events like this are essential to continue to support women in business by recognising outstanding achievement.”
This year, the shortlisting process for the Awards will be supported by the University of Central Lancashire.
The awards ceremony will take place at an exclusive awards lunch on Thursday 5th July at Tatton Park.
