NOMINATIONS ARE OPEN

Thursday 23 November 2023 at Bolton Stadium Hotel, Horwich

We are honouring some of the most amazing women in our town, the country and the world. It’s an incredible opportunity for all of us to both learn from them and, where we can, stay in touch. The vision to help where help is needed, and to celebrate the courage and common goals, where together we will make this world a better place. It’s a huge opportunity. And, it’s both exciting and humbling.

SHE INSPIRES awards celebrate the huge wealth of outstanding contributions women have made to Bolton in 18 diverse categories. Six of these categories are open to women from all over the UK and the world.

It’s a night of celebration and achievements of women from all walks of life in our diverse and thriving community, showcasing extraordinary examples of courage, triumph, kindness, compassion, transformation, skill and success.

Packed with stories of unsung heroes, community champions and women who have gone above and beyond in the course of their work, service and passions, we endevour to highlight and celebrate exceptional accomplishments from women locally and globally year on year.

“Now the next generation of inspirational women is about to step forward. A reminder that the march of women leaders continues. We should all feel comforted by the knowledge that more great women step forward each year.”

It’s my great pleasure to welcome you all to the She Inspires Awards.

Gulnaz Brennan, Founder of She Inspires Group
