The Breaking the Mould Awards celebrate forward-looking companies which have schemes in place to ensure women are well represented in their boardrooms. Three years ago Lord Davies of Abersoch, Patron of the Breaking the Mould Awards, recommended to government that 25 per cent of board positions should be filled by women by 2015. Unless business voluntarily moves towards these targets for better balanced boardrooms, government will intervene. New corporate thinking is needed and that is what the Breaking the Mould Awards seek to recognise.
We were thrilled with the enthusiasm the awards generated at their launch last year. Entries came from across a wide range of business sectors – from the biggest FTSE companies to SMEs – as well as the public sector. We are looking for even more entries this year.
It is our aspiration that the Breaking the Mould Awards will not only recognise those organisations with the most creative approach but also encourage a sharing of best practice so many more companies will be inspired to create innovative schemes of their own.
Use our website to enter, free of charge, for any of our Awards. The categories are: Large Corporates/FTSE100, Medium-Sized businesses/FTSE250; Smaller Companies; Professional Services; Public Sector; and Not-for-Profit/Charity.
