Under the leadership of Griselda Togobo, Forward Ladies has been connecting women in business, developing leadership and inspiring success stories for the past 20 years. Their national awards are held annually in Yorkshire, with this year’s event at the Royal Armouries on Friday 29th November. It is always a fantastic event and we are proud to be attending with some of our friends and clients.
Women are very well represented in our partner team at 80%. In our network of financial leadership across the Yorkshire region, we recognise that women are still under-represented but we are seeing some signs of that improving. Several of our partners and our Chairman have had long links with Forward Ladies and with Griselda and it was an easy decision to lend our support for the annual showcase event.
We are sponsoring the award for the charity / social entrepreneur of the year – the award for women who either run, or are employed to work or volunteer their time working within the public or charity sectors. This is always a competitive category and this year will be no different. We are looking forward to taking our own bit of inspiration and presenting the award to the winner
