The Award recognises 5 short listed candidates from which the Winner is selected. The Winner receives a complimentary place on the ICAEW’s Women in Leadership Programme.
Woman of Achievment Award 2007 – 2015
The Woman of Achievement Award recognised senior female leaders (typically working at partner and c-suite level) who, in additional to fulfilling a demanding role, were actively supporting the progress of women in their organisation or sector.
The Award was broken down into a number of Categories with each year’s Category Winners going head-to-head to win the highly coveted prize of a place on the University of Chicago Booth School of Business’s Accelerated Development Program.
