December 2021 sees the 9th iteration of the popular Women's Business Awards and guess which award is the most popular? Out of 20 awards, the Best New Business and the Business Mum awards are the most popular. Thus far Women's Business Club has seen 339 nominations and 34 finalists in the Business Mum category and 2,726 entries in total with 327 finalists and a whopping 11,458 votes still rising by the minute.
CEO and founder of Women's Business Club, Angela De Souza says, "We were told not to do a mum award as professional women wouldn't like it! Poppycock, the numbers speak for themselves. Women really want to be acknowledged for a job well done as a working mum. It's not an easy job running a business and it's not an easy job being a mum, it's an incredible accomplishment to do just one but both together, well, that deserves an award!"
