is sponsored by Social Business Wales
“ We at the Wales Co-operative Centre are delighted to support the Leadership in Social Enterprise category of the Leading Wales Awards again this year! It is really important to us to represent and champion the great work of the nominees while shining a light on all the social enterprises in Wales. Looking forward, it’s a privilege to take on hosting the category within our Social Business Wales Awards in 2020.”

Leadership in Diversity & Inclusion
Women in Leadership
Sponsored by Cardiff School of Management, Cardiff Metropolitan University
Cardiff School of Management is proud to sponsor this award; women are not fairly represented in leadership positions in so many walks of life, despite the many initiatives that have been undertaken to address this imbalance.
It is critical that awards such as this ensure that women are given the spotlight they deserve; both to recognise their achievements and to inspire others.
