Women Leaders MK Awards is an inspiring and professional event that recognises women living or working within the Milton Keynes postcode area, who have contributed to the growth of their industry sector, the organisation within which they are employed or the ongoing success of Milton Keynes. 

WeHubs is the first European network that supports women to create and scale their web enterprises. They are looking for the most creative ideas out there built and developed by women web entrepreneurs, and there are prizes to be won!

As champions for business growth, GetSet for Growth have teamed up with Enterprising Women, as we celebrate our 10th Birthday, to bring a selection of free training events and workshops. The topics have been carefully chosen to help ambitious women in business achieve their full potential.


With Enterprising Women celebrating its 10th Birthday this year and International Women’s Day almost upon us, Bev Hurley, CBE, reflects on how far we’ve still got to go…

New research from Barclays and the University of Cambridge casts fresh light on the make-up of a modern entrepreneur, dispelling the myth they are all confident, lone wolves with tunnel-vision to success.  


News that UK firms will be required to publish gender pay audits is to be applauded. Gender diversity in the workplace has been ignored for too long by UK PLC and it’s about time businesses that fail to employ, support and promote women are named and shamed.
