Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


Awards set to Celebrate the Achievements of Women Across Wales


The achievements of inspirational women from across Wales will be celebrated at an awards ceremony in Cardiff this week.

The first Womenspire Awards, organised by Chwarae Teg, will be held at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama on Thursday, 14 April.

Women from all walks of life will be honoured in a number of categories including community, sport, education and business. Personal achievements will also be recognised. A category for employers in the public, private and third sectors will also be included to recognise those committed to gender equality within the workplace.

Joy Kent, Chwarae Teg’s CEO, said

“It’s important to increase the visibility of women’s achievements and contributions to Welsh life so that others will be inspired to follow suit. We think the saying ‘you can’t be what you can’t see’ has a lot of truth to it.”

Lesley Griffiths, Welsh Government  Minister for Communities and Tackling Poverty, welcomed the awards. She said:

“The huge contribution women make to Welsh life can often go unnoticed, so I welcome this new honours programme celebrating the achievements of women in Wales”.
