In addition to the awards programme, the Women in Governance, Risk and Compliance Awards will be a year-round community for women of all backgrounds and their peers to work together, support and encourage each other through a number of initiatives throughout this year and beyond, including the Women in Governance, Risk and Compliance Forum.
Niki Dowdall, Managing Director at the Women in Governance, Risk and Compliance Series, said:
“2020 was a difficult year for us all, but especially so for women, with research showing the devastating impact the pandemic has had on gender equality in the workplace. The Women in Governance, Risk and Compliance Series is on a mission to bring together the great and the good of Governance, Risk and Compliance to champion, celebrate and support the amazing women across the globe who are changing the way that we live and work.
“Far more than just an awards ceremony, the Women in Governance, Risk and Compliance Awards will become part of the bigger Series - including the Women in Governance, Risk and Compliance Forum - offering a safe and supportive community for like-minded individuals to come together and support, encourage and champion the very best of GRC business.
“Along with our partners and judges, I’m incredibly excited to learn more about the remarkable women that are changing the GRC landscape, and I look forward to sharing and celebrating their incredible stories!”
