Nominations are open for the 2016 Women Leaders MK Awards.
Women Leaders MK celebrates and recognises women living or working within the Milton Keynes postcode area who have contributed to the growth of their own particular sector and the ongoing success of Milton Keynes.
The awards were the brainchild of Jan Flawn CBE, Founder of specialist neurological care provider PJ Care.
“After winning the national CBI First Women of Business Services award in 2013, I realised how important it was to celebrate the achievements of women. I wanted to share this with the talented and successful women of Milton Keynes,” she said.
“Although the gender gap is decreasing, it is still very much a man’s world when it comes to business leaders and I wanted to celebrate the hard work and achievement of women who have overcome obstacles to get to where they are today.”
Last year’s award ceremony was a glitzy event, held at the Hilton Doubletree, where 14 inspirational leaders collected their awards from prominent figures including Dany Cotton, Assistant Commissioner of the London Fire Brigade and Brigadier Nicky Moffat, the highest ranking woman in the British Army.
This year’s Women Leaders MK awards already has the support of some of MK’s top employers, including NHBC, Mahr UK, NatWest, Dentons, Handelsbanken, Mercer & Hole, Howes Percival and MK Business Leaders Partnership.
The awards ceremony will be held on Friday 21st October 2016.
