THE CEO of award winning charity Active Cheshire, Anne Boyd attended the Northern Power Women awards after being shortlisted from more than 950 nominations in the Transformational Leader Category.
The Active Cheshire team and board came out in force to support Anne at the 3rd Northern Power Women awards. With over 500 attendees from across the North West, the awards showcased role models and celebrated the many different ways women contribute to a thriving Northern Powerhouse.
Anne said: “It was an honour to be nominated for the Transformational Leader award, and humbling to be in the presence of so many amazing women and men who champion gender equality in organizations and businesses across the Northern Powerhouse.
“We are so proud to have extremely talented and high caliber women on our team and board. Nearly half of our staff and over a third of our board are female. We encourage personal and professional development across the whole team, and have recently enabled promotions for two of our amazing female staff members into more senior positions.”
Representing the charity at the awards shone a light on the passion Anne has to ensure diversity at all levels within the organization, and gave further inspiration to how we can further apply good practice.
Anne continued: “It was so fantastic to network with all these amazing women, and an honour to be nominated in the first place. My congratulations to all winners and we cannot wait to continue diversity practices in all we do.”
Active Cheshire aim to promote fairness and equality, continuing to be a Real Living Wage employer, a mindful employer and following high standards of governance.
