The second Northern Power Women Awards will take place in 7 March 2017 in a glittering evening ceremony in the North.

The Northern Power Women Awards showcase role models and celebrate the many different ways women contribute to a thriving Northern Powerhouse.

The inaugral awards were held in Manchester in March 2016, attracting 440 business leaders, change agents, and inspiring male and female role models.

The awards celebrate the women and men working towards creating gender balance in organisations and businesses across the entire Northern Powerhouse.
