Our Awards with a Difference

(as featured in the i-news and The Voice!)

Women who are making a positive difference at work or in society often don’t get the recognition they deserve. They work tirelessly and rarely stop to reflect on the impact that they’ve made on the people around them. They’re usually reluctant to put themselves forward for accolades, because they don’t feel they’re doing anything special.

Too many great stories go unheard! And we’ve witnessed how their achievements inspire even greater positive social action. That’s why we’re dedicated to sharing their inspirational stories, online and offline.

28 November, 2019 @ The Opportunity Centre, aspire-igen, Bradford

Our year-round online campaign showcases the achievements and dedication of women changemakers in the North, and culminates with a celebration event each November.

We share the stories of women who are making positive social change at work or in their communities across five categories to give them the recognition and profile they deserve. We also have three great artists performing on the night, all part of the Inspiring Women Changemakers community and all passionate about positive mental health.

Come and meet them at our event on the 28th November – book here!
