London and the South shortlist unveiled for the FL National Awards & Summit 2018


The FL National Awards & Summit, now in its 9th year and proudly supported by headline sponsor HSBC UK, has announced its anticipated regional shortlist.

We are pleased to announce that a leading autism campaigner and advocate Anna Kennedy OBE has been shortlisted for Social Entrepeneur of the Year.

The annual National Awards & Summit are designed to recognise and promote the pipeline of female talent in the UK, across a diverse range of industry sectors, which this year is stronger than ever.

In what promises to be an impactful event, Forward Ladies Managing Director Griselda Togobo revealed the names of 73 female business changers in the London and the South region, who will compete across 11 categories, including business, not for profit, technology and more.

Women are not solely responsible for bridging the gender gap in business. So this year, we are delighted to also showcase top ‘male agents of change’ who are championing and leading the drive for diversity and inclusivity in their businesses and the wider community.

The shortlisted applicants in each of the categories will be invited to an exclusive awards lunch on Friday 28th September at The Hilton London, Tower Bridge. The winners from this, and the other regional finals, will then be invited to appear before a live

panel of independent judges in November, followed by the National Grand Final in Leeds on 7th December.
