Leadership, Values, Potential: Be BOLD

Barnsley and Rotherham’s Women in Business group to recognise Leaders, Organisations and Young Person’s on International Women’s Day.

The group will be celebrating International Women’s Day on the Wednesday, 8th March, in association with Sheffield City Region LEP.

The event will feature the ATHENA International Awards, which recognise value driven leadership and those individuals and organisations who encourage women to achieve their own leadership potential.

The awards are open to individuals, companies or organisations, living or working, in the Sheffield City Region, South Yorkshire and North Notts area. Women in Business are the only licence holder of these prestigious awards in the whole of the UK, and the awards run in over 500 communities worldwide.

This year, as well as recognising an individual for the official ATHENA Leadership award, there is also a further two awards that have been introduced, which includes a Young Person’s Leadership award as well as an Organisational award. The awards have been supported by Airmaster Air conditioning, Crystal Clean Services and The Source Skills Academy.

Chair of Women in Business, Jackie Freeborn said: “I’m looking forward to celebrating the day with many inspirational Women and Men from our region. We have attracted speakers of high calibre and I’m eager to hear from them. These opportunities and awards are here to celebrate the great leaders we have in our region and we have many, we just need to shout about them much more.”
