Searching for women who are winners

Have your say

THE hunt is on to find the brightest female stars of Yorkshire’s business community.

Networking group Forward Ladies is launching the Women in Business Awards 2012, which celebrate all that is great about our region’s corporate community. The Yorkshire Post is the event’s media partner.

Professional women from all walks of life are invited to enter the awards by either nominating themselves, or by getting a friend or colleague to nominate them.

Entry is via a new dedicated micro-website: The closing date for entries is Friday, June 29 and shortlisted entries will be invited to a ceremony on November 16 at the Queens Hotel in Leeds.

Etta Cohen, the founder of Forward Ladies, said: “This year, in tough times, it is even more important to recognise professional women who are continuing to create new opportunities for success.”

There are 12 individual awards, including an overall champion who will be chosen from the winners of each category. The awards are sponsored by Barclays.
