Yvonne Moffat, CEO of Net Talent, has been shortlisted in the Employer of the Year category at the Business Women Scotland Awards.
The BWS/WES Awards are hosted jointly by two of Scotland’s female business organisations, each dedicated to helping women find support and networking opportunities to allow them to strengthen their business.
With the awards, BWS and WES collaborate to celebrate the continuing achievements and vital economic contribution made by Scottish women in business.
Carolyn Currie, CEO of WES, said, “Research consistently shows that visible role models are a key driver in encouraging women to start and grow their own businesses.
“These awards provide the perfect platform for women across all sectors and from throughout Scotland to showcase the vital contribution they are making to Scotland’s thriving business ecosystem.
“We need more women to step forward and help us close the persistent gender gap in enterprise, with just 20 per cent of SMEs in Scotland currently being majority owned and led by women.”
Lynne Kennedy, BWS founding director, added, “Year on year, the female business community plays an increasingly important role in supporting the country’s economy, and with these awards, we aim to both highlight and celebrate the value of the talented women who are successfully blazing the trail in practically every sector of the Scottish economy.”
The winners of the awards will be announced at a ceremony in the Grand Central Hotel on Friday 2nd November.
