What does it mean to be a Judge for the Northern Power Women Awards?

I’m delighted to have been approached to become a Judge for these prestigious Awards. I’m an advocate for gender balance within organisations and the key strength that all forms of diversity engenders.

If you can take one thing from the judging process, what do you want it to be?

It’s important that we acknowledge those emerging leaders who are working hard to promote gender diversity and inspiring others to do so.

Please complete this sentence…”I am supporting Northern Power Women because…..”

I’m supporting Northern Power Women because I’m passionate about increasing opportunities for talented people irrespective of gender who can make a real difference in the region, and a significant contribution to the future of the Northern Powerhouse. As a business PwC is committed to help support and create diversity and inclusion in the workplace and as such we must be transparent on where we are and the progress we are making and report against our measures – essentially ‘what gets measured gets done’ – as a consequence diversity and inclusion sits right at the heart of our culture.
