The 13th First Women Awards took place on Thursday 29th June 2017, at the lovely Hilton Bankside in London. Receiving nominations from over 600 women from across the UK, 2017 has now become a record year.
Created by Real Business and supported by the CBI, the First Women Awards continues to be a distinguished programme that inspires the next generation, fuels entrepreneurial passion and galvanises women to be a force for change. The event was hosted by comedian Lucy Porter, a regular face and voice on TV and radio panel shows.
“The achievements and passion of all the finalists was truly remarkable,” said the judges. “It is humbling to witness such unbridled drive and determination.”
Unfortunately, Verity could not be there to accept the award herself as she is now off on maternity leave but she celebrated at home with family. Verity was promoted to the TSW UK board earlier this year, our first female board member, which forms a key objective at TSW, to promote and nurture equality.
As ever we are so proud of Verity and all her achievements and look forward to her next one as she embarks on the journey towards her next, Mother of the Year 2018.
