The Recognition of Outstanding Contribution Award was introduced in 2000, and revised in 2017, to showcase and celebrate achievement among women in Scotland across all sectors.
This award will be presented to a woman who has demonstrated outstanding contribution to a business or the wider community, over and above her normal working activities. She may be a mentor, volunteer or charity ambassador giving of her time, skills and energy for the benefit of others.
The award is aimed at identifying business role models who inspire and motivate others.
The award for outstanding contribution to business was so unexpected. When you run your own business it can be a lonely path, and right from the get go I’ve always believed in giving back – it’s a great way to meet new people, help people as well as learn new things but, most importantly, it creates a valuable network with whom you can share your challenges. I’d urge any woman who’s in business to enter this year’s awards – there’s so much talent out there to celebrate and we should be rightly proud of standing up to be counted.
