WayfinderWoman wins prestigious Voices from the Frontline Award
Women from Eastbourne and the surrounding district will shortly have the opportunity to be part of a ground breaking film thanks to a prestigious award announced this week. Laura Murphy, Chairperson of the social enterprise the supports women in the workplace, WayfinderWoman, said, “We are thrilled and honoured to receive this £1200 award from Rosa’s national ‘Voices from the Frontline’ scheme. Within our film women will tell their stories about the challenges they still face within the workplace and suggest ways that employers can more effectively support and encourage women to bring their best to the world of work. That way, employers can more easily tap into the hidden potential of women which will help the economy grow and secure more jobs.”
In announcing the award, Louise Cook, the Grants Manager for Rosa, sang WayfinderWoman’s praises, “Our panel were hugely inspired by the excellent work programme and your amazing work.”
The film will be shown at WayfinderWoman’s inaugural conference The Hidden Workforce, on Friday 22 April at East Sussex National Golf Centre in Uckfield. Part of a larger programme to help inspire and motivate individuals and businesses, seven nationally and internationally successful speakers will be revealing their secrets about how businesses can tap into the hidden workforce and grow. Tickets for this not-to-be-missed conference are available via www.mtc3ltd.com
Laura added, “This grant marks recognition and support we need to continue helping women in business. By showing it at the conference both men and women will now be more aware of the potential there is around them. It will really help us spread our message and provide women and girls the opportunities in the workplace they deserve.”
As part of WayfinderWoman’s relentless campaign, the organisation is hosting its inaugural business conference, The Hidden Workforce: Releasing Talent, on 22nd April 2016 at the East Sussex National Golf Club, Uckfield.
