Do you know a woman in business who has seen exceptional growth, shown true resilience or made a positive social impact? Or maybe she’s a rising star, a sole trader or a new start-up?
With the effect coronavirus has had on the world and the economy, it has never been a more important time to celebrate success as entries open for this year’s Business Women Scotland Business Awards.
Back for a sixth year, the awards that mark the achievements of the growing number of women-led businesses and recognise the entrepreneurial talents of women across Scotland. Importantly, the awards also help to create more business role models to inspire the next generation of leaders. This year awards will go to women running their own business and those in larger organisations.
“It is more important than at any other time for women to enter the awards this year. These awards provide the perfect platform for women across all sectors in Scotland to showcase the vital contribution they are making to our business ecosystem. We need more women to step forward and help us close the gender gap in enterprise, with just 20 per cent of SMEs in Scotland currently being majority owned and led by women.” - Lynne Kennedy MBE, founder of Business Women Scotland.

Ticket-holders can join us from their office or living room. We start at 11:15am with our presenter for the day Rachel McTavish.
