The University of Central Lancashire is supporting Barclays in its search for Lancashire’s top female business talent.

The bank has launched its second Celebrating North West Women in Business awards, in recognition of women who have made an outstanding contribution to business in the region.

UCLan will be assisting the shortlisting process to help determine the winners and is encouraging businesswomen across the county to come forward and enter.

Categories include Rising Star, Woman of the Year SME Business and Most Supporting Business Promoting Diversity and Citizenship. Entries by Friday, May 4 and the winners will be revealed at Tatton Park on July 5.

Professor Chris Pyke (pictured) executive dean of the Lancashire School of Business and Enterprise said: “The North West has a thriving business community and it is important we acknowledge success while at the same time encouraging more women to pursue their ambitions, with the help of the business support initiatives within our School.”
