Leadership Summit & Awards 2023
“The impact of the awards has been huge. This achievement has shone a spotlight on my career and inspired others. More importantly, the awards have enabled me to promote women’s causes and to encourage women to consider all possibilities.”
“I absolutely love the FL awards. I remember the first time I attended a few years ago and entering the room as the speaker – I couldn’t believe the buzz and the energy. But then again it’s no surprise that so many high achieving women in one room could create an unbelievably high octane, inspiring atmosphere. Every year it gets better and better.”

Now in its 13th year, the Forward Ladies Leadership Summit and Awards honours the impact of female leadership, innovation and entrepreneurism in business.
We continue to use our platform to showcase the achievements of women breaking barriers across the public and private sectors, giving them the recognition and visibility, they need to inspire the next generation of leaders. These women are changing lives and transforming the UK’s businesses, communities, and industries.
They are the audacious ones, the innovative transformational female leaders – the game changers – the unstoppable ones.
As we celebrate another International Women’s Day, we are excited to launch The Forward Ladies Leadership Summit and Awards to identify and recognize the women breaking barriers. Our theme for this year is Breaking Barriers.

SUMMIT & AWARDS
With last year’s theme being “Unstoppable Women”, we celebrated women who are showing exceptional leadership abilities in their teams, challenging and breaking glass ceilings and uplifting communities across the entire UK and globe. These women are changing the world with their craft, talents, creativity, eloquence, leadership and impacting generations all around the world.
The FL Leadership and Summit Awards brought together women from all fields, organizations, industries and backgrounds to discuss their journeys and careers and celebrate their exceptional leadership. We brought together carefully curated expert panels, as well as industry-leading women to talk about their experiences as neuro-divergent women in the workplace and how the next generation can prepare to be unstoppable.
Each year we assemble a wide variety of knowledgeable speakers from many different backgrounds to speak on topics important to us. This variety allows us to showcase different viewpoints on important subjects, and look at them in a way we may not have considered before. Below are just some of the speakers from the event.
Become a sponsor, make a difference
Our mission since day one has been to help all women especial those experiencing challenges due to societal inequalities. That is why for every person who joins our community, every sponsor, event attendee we endeavour to pay forward your support to partners we work with. We thought this was a pretty good idea. Turns out a lot of you agree too. Over the years, we’ve supported many charities, sponsored scholarships, mentored many others for free — all thanks to supporters like you. We are honoured to announce our charity partners for our Leadership Summit and Awards 2023.
