Founded in 1992, the Inspiring Women Awards have, over the past 28 years, publically recognised and promoted the achievements of 100’s women who live or work in the North West and North Wales. Many of the Award winners have gone on to receive further recognition through our Honours system and in 2018, 3 more were honoured: Diane Modahl MBE (Sports Award winner 2003); Marnie Millard OBE (Business Award winner 2016) and Britain’s most decorated Winter Paralympian Menna Fitzpatrick MBE (Inspiring Young Woman Award winner 2017).
These evolving Awards have stood the test of time because at their heart is the desire to continue finding and recognising those women who inspire us.

The Inspiring Young Woman Foundation
The Foundation was established in 2010 to fund a bursary for the Inspiring Young Woman Award winners and fund local projects that concentrate on the wellbeing of our young women.
“The Inspiring Women Awards shine a light on hundreds of inspirational women from all walks of life in the North West of England and North Wales. Publicly celebrating and promoting the achievements of women in business and the community is critical to ensuring the impact they are having is recognised, and it also provides a cadre of visible role models to inspire the next generation of leaders. I am honoured and humbled to have received the 2019 Constance Award, and am determined to continue quietly making a difference in all that I do.“
