The inaugural Women in Finance Awards Ireland is open for nominations!
In Ireland’s financial services industry, just 13 per cent of those at chief executive level are women, according to data published by the 30% Club.
The inaugural Women in Finance Ireland event, part of a series organised by GrowthBusiness.co.uk and What Investment, will reward the exceptional achievement of women across a range of finance sectors, from the world of venture capital and banking to accountancy and corporate law, and identify new role models for women in finance positions.
If you are a talented Irish female finance professional, we’d like to hear from you. Nominations can be made at this link, free of charge, today.
The event will be held on November 22 at Clodarf Castle in Dublin.
Already established in London, the Women in Finance Awards is Europe’s largest diversity initiative recognising the high-achievers, advocates, and role models for women in the sector.
The second annual Women in Finance awards was hosted on the June 27th at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London with 800 of the UK’s top finance professionals gathering to celebrate leadership in diversity and inclusion.
The judges convene two weeks before the awards ceremony to review all of the finalists’ nominations. They will decide the winners based on the written submissions, so try to include as much information as possible in your nomination.
Please use the criteria, listed on the site accessed through the link above, of the category you wish to enter to shape your written submission, as the judges will refer to each criteria to guide their decisions.
Each written submission should be at least 400 words and a maximum of 600 words. There is no cost to nominate and you can enter as many categories as you wish.
A member of the Women in Finance Awards team will reach out to everyone who nominated around four months before the awards ceremony to tell them whether they have been shortlisted as a finalist. Good luck!
