Women who are the cornerstone of West Northamptonshire communities and businesses are to be recognised in the 10th Inspirational Women Awards.

Organised by the West Northamptonshire Council (WNC) Women’s Forum, the awards aim to publicly recognise and promote those women who inspire and have a real impact on the lives of others in the community or the workplace.

Cllr David Smith, WNC's Cabinet Member for community safety and engagement, and regulatory services, said: “We are very fortunate in having so many women playing hugely important roles across West Northants communities and workplaces. 

“What we’re looking for is not only someone who goes that extra mile, but that person who has made you stop think about yourself and how you can support your community or nurture the next generation of female entrepreneurs."

There are two categories for the 2022 awards:

  • Business Award
  • Community Award

Potential nominees for the Business Award could include someone who has inspired through their paid employment, an inspirational business owner or someone who has inspired you in your career.

For the Community Award it could be a family member who has been a rock during this challenging year, a neighbour who has set up a community group to support local children and families, a friend who has campaigned for better healthcare, or a colleague who fundraises for charity.

Nominations close on Wednesday, 26 January 2022. The shortlisted finalists will be announced on 18 February 2022.

The awards will be presented at a ceremony to mark International Women’s Day (IWD) on Saturday, 5 March 2022. The theme for IWD 2022 is #BreakTheBias
