IT was women to the fore in the Inspiring City Awards in association with City Facilities Management that pay tribute to the people and the businesses which make Glasgow great.
Last night more than 350 luminaries gathered at the Crowne Plaza Glasgow for the seventh annual Inspiring City Awards, organised in partnership with The Herald and Glasgow Chamber of Commerce to recognise and celebrate those who go the extra mile to help ensure the city and her people thrive.
Donald Martin, Editor of The Herald and Editor-in-chief of Newsquest Scotland, said: “Tonight’s winners are all incredible people making an inspirational and positive difference to our city and our citizens.
“The Herald is delighted to provide a platform for the recognition all our nominees and winners deserve. We are also massively encouraged to see that the top awards provide further evidence of the huge impact women are having in this city as leaders, entrepreneurs and role models.”
MCR Pathways, the pioneering mentoring charity captured the Education Award for the work they have done to transform education outcomes for care-experienced young people across Glasgow.
