NatWest Award Recognition
NatWest Award Success
Shared Interest Managing Director Patricia Alexander has been named as one of the top 100 Women in Social Enterprise (WISE) in the UK, and has gone on to become an Award finalist in one of four categories.
What is the WISE 100?
The annual WISE100 list is created by NatWest Social & Community Capital in partnership with Pioneers Post. This year's Top 100 women were announced at the end of February, with Patricia appearing alongside a multitude of inspiring female leaders.
What happens next?
Now 29 finalists have been selected, with Patricia named as contender in the Social Investment Champion category.
Five guest judges will assess the nominated finalists, including the current WISE100 Social Business Leaders and the NatWest SE100 Leadership Champion. The winners will be revealed on 18th March.
A key area of focus for NatWest
Megan Virrels, CEO of NatWest Social & Community Capital – the bank's independent social investment charity, which has been supporting social ventures for more than 20 years – said: "Congratulations to all the finalists in this year's WISE100 Awards. Championing women in business is a key area of focus for NatWest, and the growing field of purpose-led business and social enterprise plays a vital role in tackling some of the biggest social and environmental challenges in our communities."
