The Community Commitment Award, introduced in 2017, recognises the contribution of an individual, group, business or organisation to a charity or community project, by promoting social action, community involvement, volunteering or fundraising.
“I was delighted to win the ASB Community Commitment Award in 2018, for my work founding the Menopause Café charity. The application form was thought-provoking and I found it useful to consider the points raised and gather the data required. I enjoyed the interview very much, a chance to talk about why I believe we need to start conversations about menopause, and to meet two knowledgeable interviewers and businesspeople. The award ceremony itself was friendly and relaxed, with delicious food and a great atmosphere – I was pleased to meet up with many other ASB members and their guests and to get networking. The icing on the cake was to actually win the Community Commitment Award. We proudly display the ASB Award logo on the Rowan Consultancy website and it was useful for PR purposes both for Rowan Consultancy and for Menopause Café. I would encourage any businesswoman to look at the ASB award application forms and consider filling one in, who knows where it will lead you?”
