For years we’ve uncovered a generation of role models to inspire the next, and the First Women Awards have remained an impartial endorsement for female entrepreneurs. However, the nominations are almost at an end, and there’s still time for you to put either yourself or someone else forward.
Created by Real Business and the CBI in 2005, the First Women Awards recognise pioneering and glass-breaking UK women who have opened up opportunities for others – and we’re still accepting nominations.
The First Women Awards, hosted by Real Business and supported by the CBI, are in their 12th year – and we need your help to champion the trailblazing female leaders of Britain's business, entrepreneurial, engineering, science and technology and media sectors.
