The annual Highland Business Women Awards recognise the achievements of women in business across the Highland region.  The Awards recognise the significant contribution that women make to all types of businesses and organisations in the area, as well as their contribution to the wider economy.

2020 Virtual Awards

A massive thank you to all who joined us - what a brilliant, virtual, celebration of our finalists, winners and of 25 years of Highland Business Women.
