Barclays Yorkshire Women in Business Awards


I was delighted to attend the Barclays Yorkshire Women in Business Awards on Friday 23rd June at Bowcliffe Hall and want to congratulate all the women honoured at this event. 


These awards are a fantastic opportunity for business women from across Yorkshire to network and share ideas and knowledge, and further encourage women on their entrepreneurial journey. 

Women in business are a major contributor to the UK economy, yet there are still too many barriers that women must overcome in comparison to their male counterparts. Boardrooms are still dominated by men and the pay gap between men and women remains unacceptably wide.  By celebrating the achievements of women in business, we can promote equality and diversity within businesses and the economy.
