Investment Week is making a final call for entries for our inaugural Women in Investment Awards in categories including Rising Star, Role Model of the Year, and Supporting Diversity.
Do you work with a woman who is a trailblazer within the investment sector? Or perhaps you know a woman whose contribution to a project or task has been inspirational?
Maybe there is a rising female star in your midst or someone who has been a role model or mentor to women working in the investment sector?
If so, we are ready to celebrate their achievements at the inaugural Women in Investment Awards.
The Women in Investment Awards are not about men versus women, or whether a particular gender is more suited to a career in financial services. They are simply about celebrating and recognising the achievements of women in a sector where they are currently under-represented.
The Women in Investment Awards firmly believes that initiatives that aim to inspire and campaign for greater representation of women both in the investment sector and on company boards such as HM Treasury's Women in Finance, the Investment Association's Diversity Project and the 30% Club have a key role to play in supporting gender diversity.
We believe the Women in Investment Awards can complement these initiatives by shining a spotlight on the work of inspirational and groundbreaking women in the investment sector.
Who can enter?
The awards are open to firms operating in the UK investment industry.
Nominees can be involved in roles including but not limited to fund management, wealth management, investment research, financial advice, investment analysis, marketing, sales, human resources, compliance, middle, front or back office.
There is no limit on the number of nominations or categories. Women currently on maternity leave can also be nominated.
Nominations must be received by 4 September and the awards will be held in November.
Our categories include Investment Analyst of the Year, Fund Manager of the Year, and Social Media Influencer of the Year.
We are also welcoming entries for the Diversity Project Award, which is open to companies in the investment sector.
Meanwhile, a major award on the night will be the Women in Investment Glass Ceiling Award.
This will be presented in recognition of women who have risen to the top of the career ladder and are an inspiration to future female leaders.
