The Northern Power Women Awards showcase role models and celebrate the many different ways women contribute to a thriving Northern Powerhouse. The inaugural awards started in March 2016, attracting 440 organisation leaders, change agents, and inspiring male and female role models, in 2017 520 celebrated success across the North and in 2018 580 attended receiving a record 950+ nominations.
Northern Power Women Awards moved to Manchester Central in 2019, attracting 800+ attendees for a huge extravaganza and making a huge bang on social media by trending in 10 locations in the UK.
In 2020 we’re aiming to smash all of our records and reach out to more people to be part of the Northern Power Women movement.
The awards celebrate the women and men (in all categories) working towards creating gender balance in organisations across the entire Northern Powerhouse. Winners are profiled and their stories shared to encourage other individuals and organisations to step up and take action. The awards also feature a Power list and a Future list, which showcases women who are future leaders and influencers.
Northern Power Women is a collaborative campaign to accelerate gender diversity from the North of England.
