25 Influential Women Leaders Award launched

first_imgNominations were opened for the public to select women for the 25 Influential Women Leaders Award, which was organised to highlight the work of Guyanese women in their various fields of work.The award is set for May 16 at the Pegasus Hotel, where 26 women will be celebrated for their contributions to society.One of the organisers and Managing Director of Cerulean Inc, Lyndell Danzie-Black told Guyana Times, “The award is the brainchild of the Nico Consulting Incorporated and Cerulean Inc. We decided that we wanted to provide a platform for women, especially the celebration of the work of women”.She added, “We realise that there is so many women who are doing great work and not being recognised for it. Because of that, we thought that it would be a good thing to do the award, which we call the 25 Influential Women Leaders Award.”To nominate persons, a Facebook page was created under the title 25 influential women leaders where persons can get acquainted with the details and requirements.“What the award does is that it gives the public an opportunity to nominate 25 women leaders. We want to encourage them to start the nominations. We are going through in a very transparent way with seven judges.”Danzie-Black said that anyone is eligible to enter the award ceremony as long as they have made a valuable contribution to assist others. Corporate companies can also sponsor spots for their employees to attend the event just to witness the recognition of outstanding ladies.While the nominations are closed, the 25 persons will be announced shortly to the general public. It is the inaugural event and promises many more in the coming years.last_img
