To mark International Women’s Day 2021, Jersey Women’s Refuge invite the Jersey community to nominate local women for the Inspiring Women of Jersey Award 2021.
To acknowledge International Women’s Day today, Monday 8th March 2021, Jersey Women’s Refuge, in partnership with Soroptimist International Jersey invite Islanders to nominate an outstanding woman to be put forward for ‘The 2021 Jersey Women’s Refuge Inspirational Woman Award.’
“We are seeking nominations for women in Jersey who have inspired others through their self-less achievements, commitment and personality to help others for the greater good,” explained Marine Oliviera, Jersey Women’s Refuge. “Whilst we have had to postpone our annual IWD breakfast event we are able to acknowledge this very special day by launching, ‘The 2021 Inspirational Woman of the Year Award,’ in partnership with Soroptimist International Jersey, who originally helped launch the Jersey Women’s Refuge in 1988”.
Winners will be announced at our International Women’s Day which will take place later in the year. Anyone in Jersey can nominate a candidate they feel deserves recognition for their endeavours, passion to help or inspire others.
