The Asian Women of Achievement awards have also evolved over the past 14 years. Back in 1999, the majority of our candidates and winners came from the Indian subcontinent. At the 2012 awards, for the first time, a majority of winners and special commendations hailed from east Asia – we celebrated amazing women from Korea, Afghanistan, China, India and Malaysia. The “Asian community” in Britain is itself becoming more mixed, more confident and outward-looking.
I encourage you to share your own wonderful stories and nominations of Asian women who are shaping a new Britain. You can make nominations online or contact us at:firstname.lastname@example.org / 020 7045 7600. We will, I assure you, give their achievements a real platform and, I believe, boost their confidence and future prospects.
Please note: the nominations deadline is March 13.
