Multi award winning presenter, Rupal Rajani, will co-host the event alongside Founder, Sandra Pollock who had this to say…
“The gala awards and celebration bring together some of the highest achieving women from across the region to showcase and recognise the achievement, diversity and excellence around. The quality of the nominations this year are again exceptional and come from the length and breadth of the Region. The winners from last year have seen real benefits from the recognition they received from winning in their categories. I am astounded at what is being achieved by women in the East Midlands. This year we have a surprise announcement, you’ll have to be there to find out what it is.“
The event also raises money each year for two regional charities. The chosen charities this year are Me & De, and Healing Little Hearts.
