CEO, Editor

"Welcome to the 2022 Powerwomen Awards. The 2022 shortlist demonstrated strength and leadership over this time of global, health crisis. The recent FTSE Women Leaders Review shows that almost 40% of UK FTSE100 board positions are now held by women. Peter Swabey, Policy and Research Director at The CGI (The Chartered Governance Institute) says it “compares to 12.5 per cent just ten years ago.” The net effect of this is that improvements have been made and awareness raised to ensure both women and men can shake off stereotypes and construct a more empowering work environment. Citywealth Powerwomen may have suffered along the way but stand as beacons of success –paying it forward for the next generation. This contest was born with the help of an LSE professor and its aim has always been to support women and to recognise their champions with upward career progression. The tools identified ten years ago are still relevant today: recognition internally and externally to peers and co-workers. Citywealth Powerwomen Awards are proud to have been part of the success story and ongoing journey. ."
