Role Models

Creating visible and accessible role models is central to our mission at Northern Power Women
NPW Montage

70,000 strong and still growing


We know the importance of showcasing trailblazers, go-getters and do-gooders who can inspire and motivate others to enable them to realise their own potential.

As a result, we have spent the last five years curating a group of awe-inspiring people across all sectors, all genders and all regions across the North to do just that!

There’s power in numbers

In order to bring these role models and the wider Northern Power Women and Northern Power Futures communities together, we have created the Power Platform.
Built on the principles of paying it forward, being generous and making a difference it is a space to enable meaningful expansion of your network and a hub of opportunity.
