LeicestershireLive launched the Women in Business Awards 2021 to recognise the achievements of female entrepreneurs and professionals across Leicestershire. As headline sponsors, we’re playing a key role in highlighting the work of female business professionals in the region and helping to choose the finalists for each category.
The Women in Business Awards is an important event in the local business calendar, celebrating female role models for future generations.
Our HR Business Partner Claire Antony said:
“We really wanted to do something locally to support diversity in business and the Women in Business Awards is a perfect fit. It is well documented that across the UK, females in business continue to face barriers and are underrepresented in leading roles and sectors. As this is an issue that could affect more than half the population at some stage in their lives and has such a wide-reaching impact on an individual and societal level; we are certainly keen to help tackle it.
We want to be an organisation that is not only known for helping business leaders with things such as payroll and HR legal advice but for our commitment to providing long-term employee engagement solutions and the financial and strategic support to go with it.”
Hosted by TV presenter Emma Jesson, the awards will mark the achievements of the outstanding female entrepreneurs and businesswomen who have helped make Leicestershire such a great place to do business.
“We’re looking forward to meeting all the finalists and being able to celebrate together in person at the King Power Stadium on 9 September 2021.”
Entries for the Women in Business Awards close on Friday 30 July and three finalists for each of the 12 categories will be chosen. To nominate a local businesswoman for the awards, visit the Women in Business Awards website.
