Merseyside Women of the Year Awards 2023 finalists revealed

THE finalists for this year’s the Merseyside Women of the Year Awards 2023 have been revealed and the public has been invited to vote for their overall Woman of the Year.

All the women have been recognised for their work supporting and improving the lives of people in Merseyside and beyond, through their businesses, voluntary work, activism, charitable organisations, and creative endeavours. 

The awards ceremony will take place at the Crowne Plaza in Liverpool City Centre on Friday 30th June.

 MWOTY director, Ellie Kerr, said: “Every year the nominations we receive absolutely bowl me over. There is so much heart, passion, and grit in the women who are working to make a difference in Merseyside and our judges certainly had a tough job!

 “Our nineteen finalists are business leaders, activists, campaigners, volunteers, artists and changemakers – all using their time, skills, and energy to help others without asking anything for themselves. 

 “MWOTY has always been a platform for women who deserve to be in the spotlight so they can be seen, heard, and found. This year’s finalists are no exception and we’re looking forward to raising them up in June and celebrating their incredible achievements.”

The overall Merseyside Woman of the Year 2023 will be selected from all finalists, following a public vote (contributing 50% of the overall score) and being marked by the organisation’s judging panel against its criteria, contributing the remaining 50% of the final score. The public vote is open until midnight on Friday 2nd June.

The top prize will be presented by headline sponsor, Financial Planning Corporation, and category sponsors for 2023 include Community Foundation for Merseyside, Taylor Wessing, Hill Dickinson, Auteur Media, Neo Community and ADDvanced Solutions and the Institute of Directors (IoD).
