UNISON North West Women's Recognition Scheme 2022

Nominations are now open for the 2022 North West Women in UNISON Recognition Awards.

The Awards celebrate the achievements of grassroots women, and members who identify as women, who make an extra-ordinary contribution to the lives of members, branches and/or the wider union.

The focus of this year’s Awards is #BreaktheBias to echo the theme of International Women’s Day (IWD) – a global campaign to highlight the inequalities and biases faced by women around the world.

#BreaktheBias has been chosen to recognise the work women, and members who identify as women, are doing across the region to create a world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination.

Whether deliberate or unconscious, bias makes it difficult for women to move ahead. Knowing that bias exists isn’t enough, action is needed to level the playing field.

Can you recognise a woman, or someone who identifies as a woman, who is helping to break the bias in our communities, our workplaces, our schools, colleges or universities?

Perhaps they have organised an event to highlight why menopausal women shouldn’t be treated less favourably at work; campaigned for greater representation of women in senior leadership positions; or done something to encourage greater diversity and inclusion?

Then please nominate them for a 2022 North West Region Women’s Committee Recognition Award.

Nominations close at noon on Friday 22nd April 2022
