31 years and still going strong
Over the past 31 years, the Inspiring Women Awards lunch has become known for giving a platform to the finalists to share their stories in their own words. Guests always comment that they don’t know how we find these remarkable women year on year, but are glad we do and so are we. The Awards exist to share these stories and shine a light on these inspiring women and 2023 was another good year for doing just that.
“Everyone had a lovely day, laughter, tears, and came away very inspired. We will be back next year“ Vicky Laight, Revolution Bars Group.
This year we had two additional speakers, Awards sponsor and previous award winner, Dr Shikha Pitalia who shared her own NHS and private practice experiences and Viv Barclay, who at 59 aims to become the oldest female to cross the Atlantic solo. (you can catch both of these on the 2023 videos).
“I’m so proud to have won the Here Come The Girls award and stand alongside the talented and passionate women nominated in the other categories. It meant a great deal to have my work and causes recognised, surrounded by so many phenomenal and diverse women working to make the world a better and more equitable place. I haven’t stopped smiling since the awards lunch, it’s an experience I know will keep me boosted, and stoke the fire in my belly as I continue to move forward. I hope my story connects with and inspires other women to stand up for themselves and each other”. Kerry Daynes Consultant & Forensic Psychologist / Here come the Girls award winner 2023
