Calderdale companies are among those shortlisted at the 2015 Forward Ladies Women in Business Awards, now in its sixth year.
Sixty-two entrepreneurial female business leaders will compete across 11 categories in the Yorkshire section, including Kate Hardcastle from Insight With Passion and Claire O’Connor from Babyballet.
Forward Ladies managing director Griselda Togobo said: “The calibre of entries has been increasing year on year, but this year we have a number of outstanding entries, which have attracted women from all ages, all professions and all walks of life. We also have categories to showcase the underrepresented women working in traditionally male dominated fields and have received some outstanding entries. The judges have seriously had their work cut out for them this year.”
