Professor Julia Rouse and Dr Helen Woolnough attended the second Northern Power Women Awards on the eve of International Women’s Day in a glittering evening ceremony at the Hilton Hotel, Deansgate, Manchester.
Along with others from Man Met, and representatives from St Anne’s Hospice and Santander, over 500 guests celebrated the women and men working towards creating gender balance in organisations and businesses across the Northern Powerhouse.
Northern Power Women (NPW) is led by Simone Roche and is supporting the ‘Generating Routes for Women’s Leadership’ (GROWL) research project currently underway within the ‘Sylvia’ at Man Met. The GROWL project uses the methodology of ‘Engaged Scholarship’ to work with organisations under the Northern Powerhouse to reflect on what we know causes leakiness in the pipeline of women’s leadership, compile examples of better practice and build relationships with organisations in the North to co-create organisational change.
