Morson were proud to a sponsor the large organisation category of the third annual Northern Power Women awards ceremony held in Manchester this week.
The awards celebrate the women and men working towards creating gender balance in organisations across the entire Northern Powerhouse.
For Morson, sponsoring the awards shows how proud we are to work with so many inspiring, committed, intelligent and ambitious women. We recently pledged to double the number of females we have in engineering roles by the end of the decade, recognising that if we are to succeed as individuals, as teams, as companies and within industry we need to address the gender imbalance.
The Northern Power Women awards showcases the proactive work being done towards creating a culture of accessible and visible opportunities for all. By supporting the awards, Morson celebrated the significant contributions of people and organisations who have improved workforce diversity within the North West.
One such inspiring and committed Morson women is Sam Price, head of client engagement, who we’re incredibly proud to announce, has been added to the Northern Power Women Top 50 Future List. The future list recognises women who are influencers, leaders and change makers of the future who are already making a difference in their environments and communities.
Leading Morson Group’s Equality and Diversity Champions Board and Women in Industry campaign, Sam has delivered a programme of transformational change within the business. Her commitment to improving gender balance through partnerships with organisations like the Girls’ Network, which empowers young females from disadvantaged communities to reach their aspirations, will leave a lasting legacy within the Morson Group.
She has proven that diversity isn’t a buzz word, lip service won’t bring more diversity to male-dominated sectors but can-do kick-ass women like Sam just might, inspiring candidates & employers to embrace change. She champions both women in engineering and female talent within our business, positioning them as subject experts and trusted client advisors – which benefits our clients, candidate and employees.
Speaking about being added to the future list, Sam commented:
