Sarah Cooper of UK-based CLEAN Board Level & Senior Executive of the Year

At the UK Women in Business Awards early October, Sarah Cooper, Head of People at CLEAN was elected the nr. 1 Board Level & Senior Executive of the Year. The ‘Women in Business Awards’ Election focuses on leadership and inclusion.

The prize is awarded to women at board or senior executive level who not only have achieved personal success, but have made a significant difference to the role of women in business within and/or outside their organisation over the past 12 months.  In winning the award the judges recognised that Sarah has demonstrated commitment to developing, mentoring and promoting other women in business, and that she has influenced cultures and championed change in her  organisation by supporting gender diversity and gender equality. The Women in Business awards are designed to recognise emerging talent and are open to women who have not only already made it in business, but also those who belong to the category of ‘women to watch’ in terms of future contribution. The winner might be a future leader, or already head of a team; she could be just starting out in business, forming her own company, or quickly rising through the ranks. The judges are looking for examples as evidence, either through their activities or achievements which they have brought about for themselves or others. This can be submitted by the nominee herself, or as testimonials from colleagues. Source: The Business Magazine/TSA UK
