Cambridge Assessment is delighted to be a 'Silver Sponsor' for this year's Women in Education (WiE) awards, also to be supporting the 'Lifetime Achievement Award'. IELTS, part of Cambridge Assessment English, is also a sponsoring partner. The WiE awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of inspirational women worldwide. Gender and non-conforming individuals, men and organisations who have shown exceptional commitment to gender equality in the workplace are also recognised. Now in its third year, the WiE awards raise the profile of women in international education and, in doing so, inspire confidence, show that success is not limited by gender, and facilitate more women into positions of leadership.
The evening will begin with a keynote address from Sam De Reya, Chief Superintendent Commander for Devon & Cornwall Police and one of the UK's most influential and inspiring women. Sam leads 1330 members of staff to deliver frontline policing services, investigations and partnerships. She is actively involved in supporting equal opportunities and inclusion as well as proactively investing in leadership development, mentoring and coaching.
Chloe Shaw, the founder of Cambridge Assessment's Women in Leadership staff network, and winner of the 'Unsung hero' accolade at the WiE awards 2018 will be attending the event along with current network chair Ashley Capaldi. Together, they have been instrumental in progressing Cambridge Assessment's Women in Leadership group and are excited to celebrate the successes of so many inspirational women on behalf of the organisation. You can learn more about how our Women in Leadership staff network began and how it has changed in this interview with Chloe and Ashley.
