Women who excel in business are to be recognised for their accomplishments at the Enterprising Women Awards 2024.

A ceremony and dinner taking place on 20th September at Winstanley House in Leicestershire will crown the 2024 winners. 

Entry is invited for a limited period across ten categories covering a wide range of qualities including social commitment, STEM innovation and a newly introduced award in 2024 for emerging leaders.

In 2023 the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award went to Sue Tilley, Head of Business and Innovation at Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership.  At the event Sue said: “I truly understand the challenges that entrepreneurs face – you fuel the economy and keep going.”

The 2024 awards ceremony in September follows announcement of the selected finalists at a Summer Networking Event on 13th June at Kilworth House Hotel.  

East Midlands Chamber Head of Commercial Events and Partnerships Trace Voss said: “The East Midlands has so many inspiring women at all levels of business that deserve to be recognised for their skill and achievement.  With awards, so often people tend to think of bosses and directors but you can be an inspiring leader without being the boss.  In fact, there are so many areas of business that should have the spotlight shone on them.  We have award categories for small businesses, Team of the Year, Apprentice of the Year and many more.  It’s about those standout women that impact the direction of a business or lift the people around them so that they too have a positive influence.

“If a woman springs to mind – and I think we can all picture someone - that suits one of the 2024 categories then I’d urge people to put them forward straight away. That’s the first step toward them being a recipient at the Enterprising Women Awards 2024, which is perhaps the best accolade a woman in business can receive in our region.  An Enterprising Women award tells the business world that they’re one to watch.”
