Business in Heels, an organisation that aims to empower women in business, has launched an award geared towards achieving gender equality among businesses.

The Recalibrate Gender Equality Awards aims to encourage competition between businesses especially in the ‘War for Talent’. Through the award, the organisers hope to create a groundswell of activity driven by best practice and inspired by the stories of individuals.

“Every little bit counts and maybe this will be the tipping point in driving change. I would like to see some major change in my lifetime,” Business in Heels CEO Lisa Sweeney said.
