Our Awards with a Difference

(as featured in the i-paper 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! That’s why we’re dedicated to sharing their inspirational stories, online and offline. And we’ve witnessed how their achievements inspire even greater positive social action.

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