The awards are open to firms operating in the UK's general industry, those who derive a significant proportion of their income as suppliers to the sector or women who work in an insurance capacity outside the industry. Nominees can be involved in roles including but not limited to broking, risk management, underwriting, claims, customer service, marketing, technology, sales, human resources, compliance, middle, front or back office. The nominees must work in the UK, although they can service international clients or work with multi-national insurers or brokers.

Please note a person can only be nominated in a maximum of 3 categories. Women currently on maternity leave can also be nominated.


How to nominate

Simply complete some basic details about the person or company you are nominating via our online portal. You can also nominate yourself. Nominations can be supported with an optional statement of a maximum 150 words.

Once nominations have been received, the nominee will be contacted and forwarded a list of questions that they will be required to complete in order to progress to the first round of judging.
Nominees will be judged on their achievements during the 2018/2019 year, apart from those entering the Outstanding Achievement Award.


A shortlist will then be created from which an expert panel of judges will decide the winners in each category. Judges will take into account:

  • achievements in the workplace/role
  • challenges faced
  • evidence of contributions to support and inspire women
  • overall quality of submission

The deadline for nominations is 28th June 2019.

Only entries via the nomination system will be considered. It is up to the nominators to ensure contact details of those being nominated are correct. The panel reserves the right to close a category should the quality of entrants be deemed too low to judge; remove an entry if in the opinion of the judges the criteria has not been followed; or suggest another more appropriate category for entrants. The panel will take into account nominee responses as well as third party research such as websites and social media. The panel reserves the right to use public voting where appropriate. The decision of the chairperson is final.
