We are launching the sixth Belfast Telegraph Woman of the Year awards, that recognise the outstanding talents of the women of Northern Ireland.
Our main sponsor this year is Asda which has 15 stores in the province, an Asda Living in Belfast and is opening a new Asda in Portadown on November 19.
Charlotte Elliot, NI regional people manager for Asda, said: “In Northern Ireland, two out of three Asda colleagues are female so as a major employer of women, we’re delighted to support the Belfast Telegraph’s Woman of the Year Awards for the first time this year.
“With such a high proportion of female colleagues represented within Asda UK from boardroom to shop floor, we’re very much aware of the vital contribution women make to our business.
“We are delighted to help turn the spotlight on the many hard-working, brave and inspiring Northern Irish women who will be nominated for these awards.”
