The 2nd Women in Pensions Awards were presented by comedian Viv Groskop at a gala dinner at the Hilton London Bankside on 11 July 2019.
The awards aim to shine a spotlight on the work of inspirational and groundbreaking women in the pensions sector as well as the organisations and mentors that support them.
Professional Pensions had an exceptionally positive response to these awards. Hundreds of organisations and individuals were nominated for the accolades and we received a total of 455 completed entry forms - with many categories having 50 or more entries each.
The entries were then rigorously assessed by a panel of 25 eminent judges to come up with the finalist lists - something that was no easy feat considering the exceptional quality of the entrants' submissions.
The full list of finalists and winners can be found here.
