Women of the Future 2013: Shortlists announced

The shortlists for the 2013 Women of the Future awards, in association with Shell, were exclusively revealed in yesterday’s Independent on Sunday. Today you can read the full set of remarkable profiles.

The big story in this year’s awards is the creation of three new categories, marking the growing contribution of young women in next-generation industries and technologies. So, at the Women of the Future awards ceremony on November 13, we will recognise:

  • Women of the Future in Technology and Digital;
  • Women of the Future in Science; and
  • and Women of the Future Community Spirits. 
Awards patron Cherie Blair says: ?One thing that’s really striking about the 2013 Women of the Future shortlists is that young women are leading the way in the digital, technology and science industries of the future, as well as established sectors and professions. 

“This is fantastic news for Britain. The Women of the Future awards give a platform to women achieving great things, and they show why young female talent must be given all possible opportunities. Celebrating these women will encourage others to follow in their footsteps, to pursue their dreams, and at the same time help to break down barriers.

We hope that many of you will join us at the wonderful awards night at the London Marriott Grosvenor Square on November 13. To find out more, visit the Women of the Future awards website, follow us on Twitter @womenoffuture or email events@caspianmedia.com

The Women of the Future awards are supported by: Asda, Ceridian, Cisco, Enterprise Rent-a-Car, KPMG, Mishcon de Reya, PepsiCo, Sodexo, Visa, CNBC, the Financial Times, London Business School, Huffington Post and MWB Business Exchange.
