Women represent around half of the global workforce and are a key contributor to the corporate world: despite this, these contributions are often overlooked. The 2016 Businesswomen Awards are the brainchild of Corporate Vision Magazine, who has created the awards to showcase the talent, dedication and hard work of the women who have changed the face of the business world.
Emma Keen, 2016 Businesswomen Awards Co-ordinator, commented: “Women contribute a great deal to the business market, and it is truly an honour to be able to showcase the very best women from across the market and around the globe in this awards programme. I would like to wish all of my winners continued success moving forward.”
