Management Today's Women in Business Awards

There has been legal equality between men and women at work for many decades, yet the gender achievement gap remains stubbornly persistent. Women are consistently underpaid, under-promoted and therefore under-represented at the most senior level. 

At Management Today, we think this is bad business. It is neither morally justifiable nor commercially sustainable in the face of fierce global competition for British firms to allow glass ceilings to remain unshattered.

That’s why we have been fiercely championing women in business since 2001 - in our magazine, online and at our Inspiring Women in Business conferences - because we believe that the stories of the country’s most remarkable business women can inspire inclusive change and help the next generation of female talent reach the top.

On this site, you’ll find information about two of our flagship awards - Management Today’s longstanding 35 Women Under 35 list, and our exciting new Inspiring Women in Business Awards.
