Frequently Asked Questions
What makes your campaign different?
Tired of lack of meaning, we sought a way of turning standard awards events on their head. We’re proud to run (to our knowledge) the only annual campaign event in the country where refugee women, young care leavers, single mums who’ve fled abuse, charity leaders, and businesswomen are featured and proactively introduced to each other, and to people who can support their aims.
Our campaign is about meaningful connection and inclusion. Indeed, revenues don’t even cover the time investment involved in delivering our unusual but powerful format. That’s why we need your support.
We don’t have a budget this year. How else can we support you?
You could contribute to our bursary fund for young changemakers, or offer in-kind support – contact us to discuss options. Even if you’re not able to become a sponsor this year, let’s discuss how we can integrate it with your CSR and PR plans for next year.
Tell us about the nominees…
Previously featured changemakers have gone on to receive an MBE, a Diana award, and a UK PM Point of Light award. Every nominee receives a certificate – by email or in person if they attend. They all deserve recognition.
It takes a lot to get some of them to agree to be put forward, such as Sada who faced community recrimination for teaching women self-defense as well as English, or Rosie who helped a family escape modern slavery. They have little in the way of money and a lot in the way of contribution.
What about PR?
Each nomination is published as a case study on the Inspiring Women Changemakers website so that journalists and partners like you can repurpose them for your own marketing activity. We seek consent from nominees prior to publishing on our site so that you don’t have to.
BBC North is an active partner in the awards and some of our nominees have also been featured in the regional and national press, including The Yorkshire Post, The Times, and The Voice.
Additionally, the case studies are shared widely across social media across a range of channels to our wide audience. Just ask us for the analytics.
