Like most small organizations it was hit hard during the pandemic, but “we dug deep to continue to support women and so we are absolutely delighted to be finalists,” said Jane. “We were all chuffed that we were nominated in the first place, but being shortlisted as finalists amongst such strong competition is fantastic.

This is the eighth year that the SheInspires Awards have been held and only the second year going international.

Entries have come in from countries including Denmark, India, South Africa, the United States, the UAE, Australia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Egypt and Bangladesh as well as from across the UK.

Online Judging Panel Meets will take place mid-August until September, giving all 186 finalists, some of them finalists in more than one category, an opportunity to meet their respective category judges.
