Supporting women in business is simply good business
The Great British Businesswoman Series’ mission is to provide a platform to recognise, celebrate and support women in business, champion their peers and advocates, and help foster the next generation of female business leaders.
However, far more than just an award programme , the Great British Businesswoman Series will be a year round community for women of all backgrounds and their peers to support, collaborate and encourage via a number of content initiatives that will take place throughout the year.
Making sure women in business are recognised, celebrated and supported
In 2020 only 5% of FTSE 100 CEOs were women, in 2023 this figure stands at 9%. The FTSE 250 is further behind, with just 2% of female CEOs in 2020, rising to 4.8% the past year.
This is your opportunity to be at the forefront of our movement and be part of the debate; celebrating, championing and changing the working world for women in business.
We have made it our mission to create an ecosystem where all female identifying individuals, regardless of background, can be recognised, celebrated and supported by their peers. This is your opportunity to help set the precedent and be part of the change, showing your workforce through action that equality matters.
The Great British Businesswoman Awards brings together and celebrates the women who are changing the face of business in the United Kingdom. These awards showcase the business role models, advocates and mentors, as well as the inspirational women building and leading businesses across many sectors of the economy.
The 2022 Final took place at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms in London, and with 350 people in the room, we celebrated over 160 shortlisted individuals, teams and organisations. The awards unite the whole Great British Businesswoman ecosystem, bringing together those who make it their business to inspire female business leaders across the country.
