Rebecca Evans AM, Assembly Member for Gower, is continuing to encourage constituents to embrace the opportunity to celebrate the amazing achievements made by women in Gower through Chware Teg’s Womenspire Awards. Chwarae Teg, is Wales’ leading gender equality charity, and has been working for nearly a quarter of a century on promoting the role of women in the workplace.
Rebecca Evans said: “There is still time to get your nominations in for inspirational women in Gower for these exciting awards, as the deadline has been extended until 11th May.”
"These awards celebrate the achievements of inspirational women, and the contribution of organisations who are helping create a Wales where women achieve, prosper, and fulfil their potential. I would love to see women and employers across Gower recognised amongst the nominees and winners.
“Do you know of inspiring women who are being bold and pioneering positive change? If so, nominate them!
"These awards are particularly exciting because they seek to celebrate women in all walks of life doing extraordinary things. For example, they are looking for women who are community activists, working in the rural economy, rising stars in their field, and pioneers in the field of science, technology, engineering or maths.
"The awards will also recognise employers in the private, public, and third sectors who are making a difference for women in Wales."
Chwarae Teg’s Womenspire Awards showcases the remarkable accomplishments of women across Wales and will inspire future generations.
