Benenden health sponsor First Women Awards

20th March 2013

2013’s First Women Awards are set to once again highlight the achievements of women breaking the glass ceiling in sectors across the economy – and benenden health is back on board as sponsor.

Created by Real Business and the CBI in 2005, the First Women Awards recognise pioneering UK women who have opened up opportunities for others.

Lawrence Christensen, Marketing Director at benenden health said: ‘As a mutual organisation, fairness and equality is at the heart of what we do and so we feel it is hugely important to support these awards which highlight pioneering women who are succeeding in a male-dominated business environment.

‘With 93 % of executive board directors in the FTSE 100 being male this demonstrates the inequality that still exists to this day in business.* At benenden health we are proud of our commitment to equality and currently almost half of our Board Directors are female.

‘We are greatly looking forward to seeing the nominations for these awards which recognize and reward women who have made significant achievements in business.’ 

Last year's winners of awards included the Financial Director of one of Britain's leading oil and gas companies, the founders of an innovative online retail marketplace and the first female president of the industry body for electrical contractors.

For more information on the full list of categories and how to make a nomination please visit http://fwa.realbusiness.co.uk/ . Nominations are open until April 5th  2013.

Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony taking place at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square on June 12th, hosted by broadcaster and sports presenter, Clare Balding.
