Sandra said the judges in her category will be looking for women who own or run their own businesses, whether part-time, full-time, large or small.

These women by their business acumen are working to change the expectations of what women are seen to be able to do and are contributing to the economy of Leicester and the Nation as a whole.  It is great to be able to take time to celebrate what women in our local community and businesses are achieving.  Sandra Pollock

The Jubilee Awards will take place on Friday 19th November at the Curve in Leicester.

Other speakers and judges are:

  • Sheila Lock, CEO Leicester City Council on the panel to judge the Women in the Workplace Award.
  • Leicester West MP Liz Kendall, on the panel to judge the Women in the Community Award
  • Bala Thakrar, Director of the Asian Foundation for Philanthropy, on the panel to judge Personal Hero Award.
