Although 2018 was a Special Year - a milestone celebrating the 100-year anniversary of The Representation of the People Act when all women over the age of 30 were granted the right to vote. But, just over a century later women, still face gender equality barriers, prejudice and an ongoing gender pay gap.
“We have come a long way since some women first got the vote, but there is so much more that needs to be done, empowering women to participate fully in the economic and business world across all sectors is essential to build stronger economies, achieve greater goals for development and sustainability whilst improving the quality of life for all women, their families and communities” said the chief executive Sam Smethers of The Fawcett SocietyWomen
With this in mind the Business Women Excellence Awards annual Gala Award events are set to shine a bright light on many of the UK’s extraordinary business women, who deserve to be recognised, rewarded and promoted for their achievements. These women are the inspirational stars of today and of tomorrow across many diverse sectors. The Business Women Excellence Awards continually strive to offer so many incredible business women a platform of their own to celebrate their incredible achievements, because we know that you are awesome Business Women and are worth the recognition!
Here are a few inspirational quotes directed at women by women!
