A national organisation dedicated to the training and development of women in business has been unveiled in the North East.

The launch of Forward Ladies means North East businesswomen will now be included in the group’s Women In Business Awards programme, which will conclude in November.

Managing director Griselda Tobogo said: “The awards are hugely important because they give women a unique opportunity to acknowledge successes and become credible and inspirational role models.

“The awards are not only about winning, but growing networks, making contacts and leveraging knowledge. I want to attract women from organisations which believe in inclusion, diversity and celebrating achievements.”
