The Women’s Organisation makes the running in regional business awards


The Women’s Organisation has been shortlisted in two categories at this year’s Regional Business Awards, organised by Liverpool ECHO and BusinessLive.


The awards have been running for more than 25 years and have honoured some of the city region’s biggest and brightest businesses.


The Women’s Organisation has qualified in the Customer Focus category and chief executive, Maggie O’Carroll, makes the shortlist for Business Person of the Year.


On the nominations, Maggie says: “Our mission at The Women’s Organisation is to economically empower as many women as possible – whether that be helping them to start and scale a business, progress in their career, or to build their confidence to enter or re-enter the world of employment.


“Our clients are our currency, they are the very lifeblood of our business, and their journey with us is so important. So, for our focus and commitment to customer experience to be recognised feels very rewarding indeed.


“It also recognises the hard work of the entire team here at The Women’s Organisation, whose dedication to the work we do has been particularly palpable in the past year or so during the pandemic.


“During this period, we saw our enquiries for business and other support services at The Women’s Organisation almost treble, with more than 3,000 women accessing our training programmes. Through careful innovation and quickly adapting to changes and restrictions, we were able to deliver more than 500 courses and events online.


“This meant that we could continue to deliver training, advice and support to women, at a time when they needed it most. Of that I am very proud.”


Winners of this year’s Regional Business Awards will be announced at an awards dinner on Thursday, May 26, at Liverpool’s Rum Warehouse.
