The Novi Awards, A Fresh Start for Our Thriving Awards

The Novi Awards, formerly known as the Forward Ladies Leadership Summit and Awards, has evolved and is set to redefine the landscape of female leadership recognition. 

With an impressive 14-year history, The Novi Awards has become the ultimate platform for celebrating the audacious, innovative, and unstoppable women who are shattering barriers and transforming businesses, communities, and industries across the UK. 

We continue to use our platform to showcase the achievements of women breaking barriers across the public and private sectors, giving them the recognition and visibility they need to inspire the next generation of leaders. These women are changing lives and transforming the UK’s businesses, communities, and industries.

We are excited to launch The Novi Awards to identify and recognize the women Breaking Barriers. 

But The Novi Awards is just the beginning. Novi Network is more than just an awards ceremony; it’s an extraordinary community for ambitious women who want to make an extraordinary impact. 

The Novi Awards boasts an impressive array of categories that cover every facet of female leadership, from Transformational Leader of the Year to Young Entrepreneur of the Year. 

  • Transformational Leader of the Year
  • Emerging Leader of the Year
  • Rising Star of the Year
  • STEM Leader of the Year

  • Social Impact Leader of the Year
  • Public / Third Sector Leader of the Year
  • Start-Up of the Year
