Forward Ladies is encouraging entrepreneurial female business leaders to enter their annual awards which are bigger and better than ever this year.

The organisation, which has been the voice for women in Yorkshire since 1999, now operates across the country and has a diverse membership of thousands of business women – from global corporates to SMEs and start-ups.

It has run its Women in Business Awards across Yorkshire for many years and is this year extending them nationwide with a regional final for Yorkshire and the North East taking place in Newcastle in September and a national final in Leeds in November. The deadline for nominations to be made is Wednesday 24 June.

The Awards, sponsored by HSBC, have become one of the most high profile and respected accolades for women by recognising their enormous contribution to the economy and being an acclaimed forum for training and development.

Griselda Tobogo, managing director of Forward Ladies, said:

“These awards are hugely important because they showcase exceptionally talented women in business who don’t always get the recognition they deserve for the contribution they make to the country’s economy.

“We hope business women from Yorkshire will put themselves forward once again so we can celebrate and share their achievements both in this part of the country and across the UK at our national final.”
