Laura Cook announced as finalist Forward Ladies Announces The Women in Business Award 2016
Forward Ladies was founded in 1999, having originally been set up through the regional Development Agency, Yorkshire Forward.
Forward Ladies started with one clear goal: to unlock potential in professional women. Seventeen years on and we are still going strong! We wanted to create an environment and community where women could feel heard, seen and able to upskill and develop themselves. However, after a few years our membership exploded and it became clear that we needed to spend some time creating different offers for the diverse women in our membership. We have start-ups, career women, heads of large companies, successful small businesses and women on boards – all within our membership.
Forward Ladies is the most diverse and inclusive network of its kind.
Now a national organisation with 14,500-strong (and growing) UK based professional women, we work with progressive companies wanting to retain and maximise the potential of their female talent.
Now in its seventh year, the Awards have grown from being purely regional into one of the most prestigious events in the calendar for professional women. The organisation, founded in 1999, supports women in their professional lives and celebrates and champions the role of women in the workplace.
This year Laura Cook Managing Director of The Learning Support Centre has been successfully shortlisted as Finalist in the SME Growth category.
