Last chance to nominate someone for “Woman and the Environment” for #Manchester International Women’s Day awards

Do you know women doing good work in Manchester (especially on environment, but there are a bunch of categories).  Well, you have until THIS FRIDAY, 11th January, to nominate them for an award.  See the email below, which we received today (1)…  UPDATE: The deadline is being extended ; it’s now the end of January.

As part of Manchester’s International Women’s Day celebrations we will be hosting the city’s women’s awards on Friday 8 March 2013 at Manchester Town Hall.

These awards are coordinated by the International Women’s Day Steering Group and  provide an opportunity to recognise the amazing contribution women make to the city and to redress the under-representation of women in many industries by celebrating local women’s achievements.

Women in Art
Women in Business
Women and Culture
Women in the Community
Women and the Environment
Valuing older Women
Women in Science (STEM)
