It's ten years since we started compiling MT’s ‘35 Women Under 35’, our annual celebration of female business high-fliers. So we’re particularly determined that this year's list will be our best ever. And that means we need your help. We’re looking for MT readers to nominate the most impressive young businesswomen they know (and that includes themselves).
Sometimes people ask us whether we really need initiatives like this in the current day and age. We all know that gender equality is a complex issue, and there are lots of reasons why men and women aren’t equally represented in the upper echelons of UK plc. But we continue to believe that we’d be better off with more women in positions of power – so we plan to keep celebrating the positive role models who are blazing a trail in their own areas of endeavour. With your help, of course.
To submit a nomination, just email firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 19th April, including a full biog of the person concerned, an outline of their job responsibilities and details of any outstanding achievements both inside and outside of work. Nominees must be aged 35 or under on the 1 July 2010. Thanks very much.
