NETWORKING group Forward Ladies has announced the line-up of sponsors who are supporting its prestigious annual Women in Business Awards in Yorkshire.
Barclays has been named as headline sponsor for the awards with O2, LK Bennett, UK Trade and Investment and Amplitude AV also supporting the event.
Organiser Etta Cohen (top, right) said she was delighted by the support of all the sponsors of the awards, without which the awards – which celebrate the talents of professional women across the region – could not take place.
She said: “Barclays is a new sponsor and we are extremely pleased to have them on board. We are supported by some very prominent and influential companies and it means Forward Ladies can properly recognise the considerable achievements of professional women in the region.”
Other sponsors for the event, which will take place on Friday at the Centenary Pavilion at Elland Road, Leeds, include East Coast, accountants WGN, Leeds law firm Stewarts Law and the Manufacturing Advisory Service.
