Female business leaders from across Lancashire are being urged to to enter annual awards which this year go nationwide.

Forward Ladies has been the voice for women in business since 1999 and has a diverse membership of thousands of business women from across the UK – from global corporates to SMEs and start-ups.

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

It has run its Women in Business Awards (WIBA) in the North West for many years and is this year extending them across the UK with a series of regional awards before a national final in November. The deadline for nominations is June 24 ahead of the North West and Isle of Man finals, hosted by ITV News presenter Charlene White, on October 23 in Manchester.

The WIBAs 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 across Lancashire will put themselves forward to be recognised as some of the country’s most entrepreneurial.”
