We are shining the spotlight on hundreds of innovative women today as we publish the annual #NorthInnovationWomen list.
The Northern Health Science Alliance (NHSA) and N8 Research Partnership have published a list of more than 200 women who are pushing the boundaries of innovation in their chosen fields to mark International Women’s Day.
The #NorthInnovationWomen campaign, back for its sixth year, provides an informal and supportive platform for women to be acknowledged and celebrated.
Hannah Davies, NHSA Head of External and Public Affairs, said: “We are thrilled to reveal the 2023 #NorthInnovationWomen list. The response to the campaign never ceases to amaze me and this year is no exception. It’s clear that there is a real appetite to celebrate and support women who are excelling and innovating, and we’re proud that #NorthInnovationWomen provides an opportunity to do this.
“We stand side by side with people across the globe today who are celebrating International Women’s Day as we all make a collective effort to champion women and work towards creating a world that is equal and inclusive.”
Dr Annette Bramley, Director of the N8 Research Partnership, said: “It is great to see that in its sixth year, the #NorthInnovationWomen campaign has had such a brilliant reaction! It is great to take a moment to reflect upon some of the great work researchers are delivering, right across the North of England, so we thank all those who have taken part this year.”
