Northern Power Women take over Manchester

Welcome to the 4th annual Northern Power Women Awards, here at The Manchester Central Convention Complex. Join us on Twitter using #NPWAwards, and get ready to celebrate some amazingly talented individuals!

Simone Roche introduces this year’s #NPWAwards
I believe that each and every one of you are a true testament to the incredible power of our fast-growing community of women and men who are striving to create the kind of North where we all want to live, work and thrive — Simone Roche, Founder of NorthernPowerWomen

Hosted by the ever-energetic Sam Walker and sponsored by Manchester Airports Group, this year’s #NPWAwards are bigger and better than ever. With 908 nominations, 78 people shortlisted and 53 judges, we are here to celebrate all the fabulous women and men who are dedicated to accelerating gender diversity in the North.

At what is the largest event celebrating gender equality in the UK, we have 10 fantastic award winners to announce over the course of the evening, as well as the 2019 Future List and the 2019 Power List.

We’re proud to sponsor #NPWAwards because right from our very inception, powerful women have played a key role in our history — Tricia Williams, Manchester Airports Group

We are also delighted to tonight launch our new campaign, #WeCan. This is a loud rallying call, aiming to empower everyone here to look beyond their day-to-day and do something positive to support others.

Tell us what you have done, or are planning to do, and share it to inspire others and create a ripple effect, Northern style, to tell everyone who can’t be here tonight to help the North become the most diverse, equal and fair region in the UK.

I am delighted that this year’s theme is #WeCan of which I fully support and indeed embrace the energy this brings and the positive change that we can achieve — Baroness Helen Newlove

Stay tuned and keep up to date with #NPWAwards on Twitter throughout the evening to get involved and to find out who our incredible winners are!
