Awards will be made in the following categories:
• Business Leader award
• Diversity and Inclusion award

• Health and Wellness award
• Women in Media award

• Lifetime Achievement award

"The book ‘The Ladies That Rock The Rock’ has triumphed the success of 22 inspirational ladies in Gibraltar, and last year we celebrated that with a gala dinner, an exhibition and a ladies delegation to Morocco,” Ayelet Mamo Shay said.

“However I feel that there are many incredible ladies out there that have done so much for Gibraltar and deserve the recognition.”

“We are inviting individuals and companies across Gibraltar to participate in the Award program, submit their nominations, champion Equality and celebrate International Women’s Day with us.”

Ms Mamo Shay added that, last year, 10% of the proceeds of the gala dinner and the book launch were donated to families in need.
