The Impact Award

23 Events – The Wedding Industry Awards

The Wedding Industry Awards (TWIA) was established to recognise and reward excellence in the wedding industry and to help engaged couples make better educated decisions when booking supliers for their weddings.

TWIA is independent, client-voted and rigourously judged ensuring that they are the most coveted and respected awards in the wedding industry. As a result, the TWIA logo is a kite mark of the highest quality nationwide and recognised by both wedding suppliers and engaged couples alike.

TWIA operates 9 awards events each year, eight regional events and one national event. 2018 will see the introduction of a series of brand new TWIA events. Welcome to DeVoted – The Wedding Industry Awards Winners Showcase.

Incisive Media – Women in Investment Awards 2017

The Women in Investment Awards were not about men versus women, or whether a particular gender is more suited to a career in financial services; they were simply about celebrating and recognising the achievements of women in a sector where they are currently under-represented.

Why? We know that having access to a broader pool of talent is not only important for investors, but can help to create a more sustainable investment industry for all. Encouraging gender diversity is a crucial step to accomplishing this. The awards attracted an astounding amount of entries and interest in sponsorship capturing the attention of the investment industry. It was a sold out event and was well received by all.

In highlighting the achievements of women already in the sector, as well as recognising individuals of either gender who help to maximise the potential of women and are striving to get a better gender balance, we had hoped the Women in Investment Awards would play its part by helping to inspire more women to work in what is an exciting and dynamic sector.

I Spoil U Media- The National Diversity Awards

The National Diversity Awards – a prestigious black tie event, which celebrates the excellent achievements of grass- root communities that tackle the issues in today’s society, giving them recognition for their dedication and hard work.

Charities, role models and community heroes are honoured annually at the ceremony showcasing their outstanding devotion to enhancing equality, diversity and inclusion; thus embracing the excellence of all our citizens irrespective of race, faith, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability and culture.

The concept for the National Diversity Awards arose when The Diversity Group identified an urgent need for more positive role models to be actively promoted, with the aim to empower and inspire the wide breadth of diverse communities across the UK.

The UK’s largest Diversity Award receives 22,000 nominations annually, and provides a platform to the game changers, unsung champions and those providing vital and life changing work to often forgotten sections of society.

Supported by the likes of Microsoft, Direct Line Group and MI5, the awards have attracted a growing number of celebrity endorsements including Stephen Fry, Graham Norton and Sir Lenny Henry.

The Dating Awards – UK Dating Awards

The Dating Awards was created by award-winning blogger Charly Lester in 2014, following frequent emails from blog readers asking her which apps, websites and matchmaking services she recommended. Instead of simply giving her opinion, Charly created the UK Dating Awards. Every year a panel of top industry experts selects the best of the online and offline dating industries. In 2016, following requests from American and mainland European companies, Charly also launched the US and European Dating Awards. The Awards is designed to showcase the very best of the online and offline dating industries, which are both entirely unregulated. With a keen focus on safety, innovation, value for money, and customer service, the Awards are designed to steer daters to the sites which will not only offer them the best experience whilst searching for a match, but also protect and safeguard daters. As a result of the Awards’ success Charly has become a frequent representative of the entire Dating Industry, appearing on TV shows including Watchdog, Crimewatch, Newsnight and as a guest judge on the final of The Apprentice. Charly appears regularly in national press and on Radio 4, and hopes the Awards will become a trusted mark of excellence.

The Institution of Engineering and Technology – The IET Young Woman Engineer of the Year Awards

The IET Young Woman Engineer of the Year Awards honours the very best early career female engineers working in the UK today.

These prestigious engineering industry awards celebrate women working in modern engineering – and aim to help change the perception that engineering is predominantly a career for men by banishing outdated engineering stereotypes of hard hats and greasy pipes.

As well as highlighting female engineering talent, the IET Young Woman Engineer of the Year Awards seek to find female role models who can help address the UK science and engineering skills crisis by promoting engineering careers to more girls and women. Just over one in ten (11%) of the UK engineering and technical workforce is female (source: 2017 IET Skills Survey).

To celebrate the Awards, which marked their 40th anniversary this year, the IET delved into the perceptions of a ‘typical engineer’ and found that the stereotype of an engineer is alive and well amongst school children and their parents.
