Professional Pensions’ Women in Pensions Awards is returning this November and today is the last chance to nominate.

Do you work with a woman who is a trailblazer within pensions? Or perhaps you know a woman whose contribution to a project or task has gone above and beyond? Perhaps there is an inspiring newcomer to the industry in your midst, or a dynamic lawyer, administrator, or mentor who deserves to be recognised at the highest level.

If so, PP is ready to celebrate their achievements at the 7th annual Women in Pensions Awards, where the industry comes together to recognise the dynamic talent among us.

The awards are open to those working for firms operating in the UK's pensions industry as well as those either working for, or governing, individual occupational pension schemes.

Nominees can be in roles including, but not limited to pensions management; trusteeship; actuarial; pensions and investment consulting; legal advice; investment management; fiduciary management; and scheme administration.

Nominations can also be made for those involved in roles such as sales, marketing, or communications at organisations whose primary business is related to occupational pensions.

Nominations are now open, requiring just the completion of some basic details about the person, company or scheme you are nominating. You can also nominate yourself! The deadline for nominations is close of business (5:30pm) today (Wednesday 3 April).

Please note that there is a strict limit of two entries per person. Women currently on maternity leave and women who have retired (at a date no earlier than 1 December 2023) can also be nominated.
