On 8th June, we held our 24th Asian Women of Achievement Awards, with by NatWest Group, at London Hilton Bankside. The energy in the room was electrifying with over 450 guests gathered for a gala dinner and ceremony to announce the 2023 winners across all 13 categories.
A huge congratulation to all our Winners and those Highly Commended! You are all phenomenal women who have made remarkable strides in your professions and communities.
With a total of 66 shortlisted representing 17 Asian and Middle Eastern countries, it was as always a challenging task for our judges! They were truly in awe of all the inspiring journeys, many of whom have overcame great challenges to be where they are today.
You are all trailblazers the trailblazers who are not afraid to question stereotypes, break boundaries and drive positive change through courage, hard work and determination.
The evening provided the candidates with not only with an opportunity to celebrate, but also a chance to develop new connections across different industries and cultures, , as well as instil a sense of self-belief to springboard the phenomenal women to achieve even greater success in the future
