Women in FCERM Awards 2024 are now open!
Launched in 2019, professionals of all genders and organisations in the FCERM sector, who make a real difference to gender equality in the workplace and across the industry, have been celebrated.
The three categories for 2024 are:
Rising Star Award:
An individual who is in the earlier stages of their career in FCERM who, over the past year (January to December 2023), has proactively influenced and promoted gender equality, diversity and inclusion.
This might be an individual who is at a more junior grade, where their influence may mainly be felt within their own organisation.
Equality Leadership Award:
An experienced individual who, over the past year (January to December 2023), has proactively influenced and promoted gender equality, diversity and inclusion.
This might be an individual who operates at a senior level and their influence and impact has been felt across the FCERM sector.
The Laura Baird Special Recognition Award:
In memory of Laura who passed away in 2022. This award recognises an individual who, throughout their career, has been and continues to be, an outstanding role model to all those around them.
Inspiring individuals of all genders and stages of their careers within the FCERM sector, are sought. The award submission should demonstrate what the individual has done to truly champion gender equality, diversity and inclusion and inspire others.
Please note that an individual can ONLY be entered into one of the categories.
An award for each category will be presented to each winner at the Flood and Coast Conference Excellence Awards’ Dinner in early June 2024 at the Telford International Centre.
