The next generation of female talent from the arts, business, science and technology and the voluntary sector will be honoured tonight at the 2009 Women of the Future Awards, in association with Shell.
In the running for a Women of the Future award are: Emily Bendell, 28-year-old founder of Blue Bella; the amazing 19-year-old inventor Ruth Amos, who developed a revolutionary mobility aid whilst studying for her GCSEs; bespoke tailor Kathryn Sargent; and the youngest and only female CEO of a City broker, Sam Smith of FinnCap.
Founded by writer and entrepreneur Pinky Lilani OBE and Caspian Publishing, and supported by Shell, the Women of the Future Awards were established to identify Britain’s talented young women aged 35 and under, who are set to be the leaders of tomorrow.
Now in their fourth year, previous winners include Melody Hossaini, co-founder of the UK Youth Parliament, soloist ballerina Lauren Cuthbertson and television presenter and writer, Dawn Porter.
Find out the winners here tomorrow.
