The Inspiring Women Awards
Founded in 1992, the Inspiring Women Awards have, over the past 31 years, publicly recognised and promoted the achievements of 100’s women who live or work in the North West of England, North Wales and in 2022, nationally and internationally. Many of the Award winners have gone on to receive further recognition through our Honours system and in 2023 four more were honoured: Marie McCourt MBE; Dr Gee Walker MBE, Dee Drake BEM and LCpl Natasha Day MBE. These inspiring women join the ranks of previous award winners honoured including Jennie Johnson MBE, Tracy Mort MBE, Diane Modahl MBE, Marnie Millard OBE, and Britain’s most decorated Winter Paralympian Menna Fitzpatrick MBE.
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.
“I was humbled and honoured to receive the Constance Award.
It’s such a privilege to be recognised in this way by so many amazing and Inspiring Women.
A rich diversity of women of all ages, skills and talents applauding, was very emotional for me.
Then to learn that the award was named after your Mother was the icing on the cake.
Thank you for starting these awards .
It’s fantastic how successful they are and how many women have been encouraged and supported by them. Long may they continue.” 2022 Constance Award Winner, Kath Robinson DL
